Faithfully Becoming

Faithfully Becoming Classes
Spring 2024

Faith Development nurtures both roots and wings; the roots of community and shared values, and the wings of the free mind and creative spirit.

“We are who we’re becoming;
We are all that we have done.
We are what we are dreaming;
We’ve only just begun.”
Rev. Mary Grigolia
