Growing in Faith . . . . 

     Perhaps as you sit in a pew on Sunday morning, an idea from the sermon will intrigue you or a line from a hymn will hit you in a different way than it has before.  Bingo!  You begin to see your life through a different lens.  Or you may be volunteering for Family Promise or Caring Ministries and have a heart opening moment with a person you hardly know. Bingo! In understanding something new about someone else, you are able to see or accept yourself in a new way.  Growth opportunities are everywhere once we become aware.
 
     In the Adult Education program at St. Paul’s, we offer opportunities for those same ‘aha” moments through study and building relationships.  When we grow in faith we become transformed.  In our transformation, we can transform the world.
