Who am I becoming? This question is key for a fulfilling life. How do we live with intentionality?  As disciples of Jesus, we ask questions like: What is the work of formation? How do we become people who look more and more like those who bear the image of Christ? How do love, joy, peace, and grace take root in our lives? 


“God is creating a people who can live abundantly with him in his kingdom. Flourishing in every way. Becoming fully and deeply human.” - Gravity Leadership.


  • IDENTITY:

    January 9, 2021


    Luke 3:21-22


    Pastor Chuck Fowler


    Formation in Christ is about receiving and living out of our true identity. In Christ, your ultimate reality is that of a beloved son or daughter. This is the gift of knowing your identity in Christ. But we forget, don’t we? We look to so many other things (and people) to tell us who we are. In the waters of baptism, you are claimed by the Living God. By the power of the Holy Spirit, may we be renewed in our God-given identity and seek transformation from that solid footing. 


    “What others say about us can shape our self-identity in profound ways. Identities are not found; they are given. For many of us, identities are given by people who don’t have the right to identify us. True identities can be given only by God.” - David Lomas


  • TRANSFORMED LIVES:

    January 16, 2022


    2 Corinthians 3:17-18


    Pastor Katie Fowler


    The goal of formation is to become more like Christ. It is the Spirit of God who transforms us. Or in other words the Holy Spirit brings about the fruit of the Spirit. We can’t change ourselves. But we can open space in our lives for the Holy Spirit to transform us. How do we experience transformation in our lives? Not just changing behaviors but actually experiencing formation of our heart? And what about when we feel stuck and don’t see transformation?
