FORMATION + FELLOWSHIP

CHRISTIAN FORMATION

Christian Formation provides opportunities for learning and growing together in our faith, as well as in our relationships with one another. We know that Christian education is more than acquiring knowledge; it is about helping one another discover God’s presence in and purpose for our lives.

CURRENT FORMATION OPPORTUNITIES 

Family Faith Night

Family Faith Night is a monthly program, designed to bring together families of all kinds. In just over one hour, each program includes prayer, a lesson, activities, and community building.  Family Faith Night is church. These programs connect the church calendar and our worship practices with our lives. They create space for a positive, creative exploration of God and ourselves. Join us for a fun, relaxed evening building up the body of Christ – one family at a time!

Sacred Ground Dialogue Series

Sacred Ground is a film- and readings-based small group dialogue series on race and racism in America, grounded in faith; and is part of Becoming Beloved Community, the Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society.  We are offering this program through the DSO and in partnership with the Living Beatitudes Community.

FELLOWSHIP

Downtowner’s Group

The Downtowners Luncheon Group is a fun bunch that meets monthly for lunch, trying out different local restaurants around Dayton. They typically meet on the third Wednesday of each month. A casual, fun way to enjoy fellowship with one another while supporting local businesses and sampling wonderful cuisine!

Women’s Retreats

Each spring and fall, we conduct a Women’s Retreat, designed to be a time for relaxation, fellowship, and spiritual renewal. A casual, fun, and engaging time with other women of the parish to strengthen friendships and make new ones, the weekend retreat is self-led by women of the parish and often held in a private retreat house at the Convent of the Transfiguration in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Sundae Sundays

A favorite gathering for kids and adults alike, Sundae Sundays are a summer hit! Typically held once a month from May – September, Sundae Sunday is filled with ice cream and smiles following the 10:30 worship service.

Summer First Fridays

First Fridays are a Dayton-wide celebration of downtown establishments throughout the summer months. During First Fridays, we enjoy being a place of welcome and nourishment to our neighbors throughout the city. In previous years we have had food, live music and open our doors for folks to learn more about the church. More recently we are excited to invite visitors to walk our new Reconciliation Labyrinth!

Gather, worship, reflect.
