Grow & Learn

Faith Formation

Once typically known as “Christian Education” or “Discipleship,” Faith Formation is the new name for the ministry at Myers Park United Methodist Church that helps people grow in and live out their faith. The name change indicates that Faith Formation is about more than inputting intellectual knowledge. It seeks to shape people to follow Christ in mind, body and spirit. It does this by teaching in age-specific ministries for children, youth, young adults, adults and senior adults. With this fresh focus on Faith Formation comes a new emphasis on collaboration among ministries at Myers Park United Methodist Church.
