SOTH is a community of people on a journey of Christian spiritual formation. This is a lifelong process of greater wholeness with God, with others, and with oneself. We see education as a key component of spiritual formation but believe it also encompasses aspects such as spiritual practices, service, worship, play, retreats, music, creation care, engagement with neighbors, justice, relationships, and experiences. Here you will find opportunities for all ages to explore, discover, and grow in faith. All with the goal of deepening our capacity to impact the world with God’s love.
Sunday Morning Adult Spiritual Formation
Theology of the Ordinary
What if your everyday life was enough? Upon returning home to America after living abroad, author Julie Canlis was struck by the emphasis within Christian circles on being 'extraordinary' or 'radical' or 'passionate' for God. But what about the goodness (and challenge) of living our 'normal' lives for God? The joys and challenges of living an ordinary life in the presence of God gave rise to this little book. Join us on Sunday mornings starting on January 14 to explore “A Theology of the Ordinary.” Books are available in the church office - $13 donations accepted to help cover costs.
Kids’ Connection is our Sunday School for children aged 4 – 4th grade, held on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month, 9:30 – 10:30 am. This is a time for kids to learn Bible stories, develop relationships, and grow in God’s love. After kids are signed in by a parent in the narthex, they will go downstairs with one of their teachers just before worship starts. Parents will pick up kids downstairs in the children’s library and sign them out.
“Growing in God's Love”
The Kids are excited to get started on our new lessons for September and October: Lessons from the early Church- the foundations of our Faith. We will explore parable as a teaching tool that Jesus used to help us learn, and think about, the lessons He wanted us to understand. Our sessions include a variety of media, Bible stories, and hands-on activities. We look forward to seeing all of our young friends “downstairs” in Sunday School.
