*Practicing the Way: Spiritual Formation – Sunday AM – Apr/May

Groups@autumnridge.church
calendar_today Sundays, 9-10am, April 7–June 2 in the Middle School (Upper) Room
This class is an eight-session primer on spiritual formation led by Pastor Svea Merry and Barb Zinser.

Two thousand years ago, Jesus said to his disciples, “follow me.” But what does it mean for us to follow Jesus today?

The Practicing the Way Course is an on ramp to spiritual formation, exploring what it means to follow Jesus and live a life of apprenticeship to him.

The class will enjoy teachings by John Mark Comer and other voices about apprenticing under Jesus, spiritual formation, healing from sin, meeting God in pain, crafting a Rule of Life, living in community, and more.

We’ll have the opportunity to develop friendships as we enjoy great conversation about what we’re learning. We’ll process our experiences through the weekly practices and exercises that will help integrate what we’re learning.

There is no cost to attend the class. We’ll provide a detailed workbook with exercises, space to write and reflect, and suggestions for supplemental resources for you on the first day. Meets in the Middle School (Upper) Room at 9am.

This summer option for our Practicing the Way Spiritual Formation course is a wonderful opportunity for you to engage in this with your small group, or if you’re not in a small group yet, to connect with other people as together we focus on what it means to follow Jesus.

This 8-week class, led by Pastor Svea Merry, will offer outstanding teaching by John Mark Comer and other leading teachers in spiritual formation, opportunities to process what we’re learning together, and practical applications to practice throughout the week. 

If your small group would like to take this together, we’ll reserve a table for you. Or, if you’d like to meet new people, we’ll have spaces for that too! This will be a wonderful place to make new friendships and deepen existing ones. Most importantly, we’ll grow in being with Jesus, becoming more like him, and practice doing what he did.
