Spiritual Formation

Bringing the heart of the Gospel to folks of every age, that they may grow hearts of love, compassion, and self-worth.

Our faith is over 2000 years old. Our thinking is not. We hold the Bible at the center of our faith, always taking it seriously, and sometimes question it literally.

Check our calendar below for upcoming Spiritual Formation events.

Sunday Morning Adult Spiritual Formation

Join other spiritual seekers each Sunday from 9:45 a.m.-10:45 a.m. in Havighorst Lounge and simultaneously on Zoom for a time to explore your own spiritual development. Our weekly offerings vary, with Bible studies, interfaith studies, book studies, faith based discussions, contemplative practices, lectures on current topics, or listen to a guest speaker or learn about a new theologian.

All are welcome to gather as we take time for our own personal spiritual formation. Check our calendar for our most current study.

Lunchtime Bible Study

Join us for a mid-week Bible study. You provide your lunch at home, and one of our pastors will supply the Bible reflection! On the third Tuesday of every month, your pastors will reflect and lead a discussion on one of their most challenging or their favorite Bible scripture. Email Pastor Megan at MeganS@gablesucc.org for the Zoom link.

Midday Devotions with Pastor Megan

Deepen the holy seasons of Advent and Lent by setting some time apart to reflect, practice deep listening of our sacred stories, and enjoy being stretched by the imagination of poetry. Our weekly gatherings also include prayer, fellowship and a song of the season, sung by one of our gifted church soloists. All are welcome as we gather on Zoom.

For meeting times and dates, please check our calendar below. Email Pastor Megan at MeganS@gablesucc.org for the Zoom link.

Theologian in Residence

Each year our Board of Spiritual Formation invites a progressive speaker to both challenge and inspire us as a congregation. In past years our speakers have included Dr. Marcus Borg, Diana Butler Bass, Dr. John Dominic Crossan, Dr. Amy Jill Levine, Bishop John Shelby Spong, Rev. Greta Vosper, Rev. John Phillip Newell, Bart Ehrman and Rev. John Bell to name only a few. This is an intensive weekend program where we are invited to delve deeply into a topic that our speaker is passionate about, expand our thinking and grow our faith.
