Adult Formation

At St. Columba's one of the ways we learn and are transformed for our lives as Jesus-followers in the world is through study and learning together. We come together to engage our hearts and minds in learning about the Bible, God, ourselves, and our world. We study different ways to practice Christian faith, and we come closer as a community when we learn together.  See below for descriptions of upcoming Adult formation classes and experiences at St. Columba's.
