Faith Formation for Adults

As you learn and grow in faith, you will find numerous study courses and groups that can support your spiritual growth at Los Altos United Church of Christ. These include theological and biblical studies, book groups, and conversations about social justice issues. Our approach to biblical study is with open minds and open hearts.

Below is a list of our active groups and current offerings.

Advent Study Series…

The Heart That Grew Three Sizes
Finding Faith in the Story of the Grinch 

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!  has remained an iconic story for several generations because of its seasonal theme, happy ending universal ambiguity, and moral conclusion.  author and pastor, Matt Rawle, examines this modern-day classic Christmas story , challenging Christians to discover the Advent season in new and unexpected ways.  

On the 4 Sundays in Advent, following worship and fellowship time, we will offer Matt Rawle’s guide to Advent via video and open discussion of his presentation.  We will be using our new audio equipment and monitors in the sanctuary.  Join us:
November 28:      “When Everything is Wrong”
December 5:        “When Christmas Isn’t Christmas”
December 12:      “When Light Shines”
December 19:      “When Joy Is Our Song”

This is going to be a fun Advent Time together!  if you haven’t read How the Grinch Stole Christmas, take time to find a copy and red it.  If you have a copy bring it with you.
