The roots of spiritual formation for all ages lie within the entire faith community as they gather each week to worship God together. Within this worship filled gathering formation begins and flows into each person gathered.
The Creche, created Advent of 2020,
for use during Twelve Days of Christmas is a beautiful example.
While there are certainly formation opportunities tailored to specific age groups, Saint Andrew's size makes it particularly well suited to developing relationships across the generations that create unique opportunities for spiritual growth and nourishment.
Working from the interest of the group and the possibilities present within the coming church year, the group develops a program to meet the church's needs. These opportunities are typically a time limited window and connected to a particular season or celebration in the Church. They provide an opportunity to research, teach, learn, create, and reflect together throughout the process.
