Formation and Discipleship

Formation and discipleship integrates the head, heart, and hands through study, prayerful reflection, and action as we aspire to form and live out our faith as Disciples of Christ’s teaching and example.  The Formation and Discipleship Committee is responsible for envisioning, implementing, and assessing programs and events designed to nurture intergenerational spiritual growth and development of the Moreland Presbyterian Church community.  The committee meets on a quarterly basis to coordinate classes, study groups, book club discussions, presentations, and retreats.
