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.

Sessions build on each other.

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.
