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.

Due to COVID-19, we have moved programming online. Please check the calendar below for upcoming events.

Sunday Morning Adult Spiritual Formation

Join other spiritual seekers each Sunday from 9:45 a.m.-10:45 a.m. in Havighorst Lounge for a time to explore your own spiritual development. Our weekly offerings vary, with topics and courses on the Bible, interfaith studies, a book study, faith-based discussions, contemplative practices, LGBT bible study. You will can also hear a lecture on a current topic, 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. Topics and leaders vary. Refreshments and childcare provided.

Lunch and the Bible

Join one of our pastors on the third Tuesday of each month from noon-1:30 p.m. in Havighorst Lounge for lunch, fellowship, and a discussion on one of their favorite Bible passages.

Sandwiches, chips, cookies, and beverages will be served. Free-will donations accepted.

Please RSVP to Pastor Megan at 305.448.7421, ext. 119 or MeganS@gablesucc.org.

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.
