Parish 101

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 3.46.57 PMFrom the earliest days of praying and planning for the birth of The Parish, we’ve known that Spiritual Formation would be a cornerstone of this church. We didn’t know much about what our worship services would look like, or where we’d gather, but we knew that discipleship and growth would be at our core. That’s why we’re so excited to be taking the very first step in our Parish Formation process later this month.

On Saturday, February 22nd, we’ll be hosting Parish 101. We’ll meet at Legacy Community Academy from 5-8pm, and it’s going to be a great night. In case you missed our last Parish Gathering, here’s the important information on what Parish 101 is all about. If you’d like more information, feel free to email us, and if you’d like to sign up to attend, you can do so by clicking here. Hope you can make it, we’d love to see you there!

What is Parish 101? Parish 101 is a place to discover and learn. Through teaching and interacting with others, you’ll explore more about who you are, who we are, and how you can take the next step in your personal journey.

Why should I come? We believe that each person is unique, so spiritual growth shouldn’t be a “one-size-fits-all” process. Each of us have different stories, personalities, strengths and weaknesses that are extremely important. Knowing these things helps us find our most effective pathway for spiritual formation, and Parish 101 is the first step in that process for our community.

Who is Parish 101 for? Anyone who’s looking to grow personally, learn more about the DNA of The Parish, or to find out how to get more involved in the life of our church. Parish 101 is built with flexibility in mind; so whether you’re on the fence about faith or you’ve been a Christian for decades, you’ll feel right at home and discover the appropriate next step in your journey.

What will Parish 101 look like? Parish 101 is an interactive experience, moving from times of teaching to times of processing and learning with others seated at your table. Each table is led by a Guide, who can facilitate discussion, answer questions, and be a personal resource for you in the future.

What do I need to bring? When you register for Parish 101, we’ll send you a few “homework” items to fill out and bring with you. These activities are extremely important, and being prepared will help you get the most out of your Parish 101 experience. Don’t worry, they won’t take much time at all, and we promise you’ll really enjoy what you learn along the way.

Sound like the right place for you? Then join us on Saturday, February 22nd. Click here to register, or click here to email us with any questions. We can’t wait to see you there and help you take the first step in the Formation process.
