Spiritual Formation

At Peace United, you'll find a lively network of small groups, study communities, and circles of practice.


Whereas small groups usually revolve around particular interests or support, circles of practice focus on spiritual formation and Christian growth. What does it mean to grow in faith, to mature in Christ, to evolve in courage and service? 


Four Paths of Gospel Practice

First Path:

OPEN TO CHANGE, taking up the path, we turn to Jesus and the Beloved Community.


Second Path:

Taking the 'way of the cross,' we FACE SUFFERING (our own, the world's) as we follow Jesus' example.


Third Path:

Receptive to peace, delighted by grace, we WELCOME JOY and make a new home in Jesus' expansive love.


Fourth Path:

Integrating courage, suffering and joy, we walk the roads of our world, learning to SERVE AS JESUS SERVES.


And these four paths create a life-time of discovery, wonder and service...as we partner with the Spirit and church to practice discipleship and grow in faith.
