Spiritual Growth Path

When people ask us,

“What can I do in my life to grow closer to God?”

we point them to our spiritual growth path:
Step One: Weekly Worship
Step Two: Core Curriculum
Step Three: Group Life
Step Four: Volunteering

Step One: Weekly Worship

Worship takes our mind off the mundane and temporary, and inspires us with the eternal and transcendent. In worship at St. Paul’s, you’ll hear the two important truths of God’s Law and God’s Gospel presented in a balanced way. You’ll have a chance to pray and sing, to meditate and celebrate. Learn more about worship at St. Paul’s here.

Step Two: Core Curriculum

The Core Curriculum is a series of four “Connections” Bible Courses which begin short and basic, and gradually lead into a deeper understanding of God’s plan and a study of the Bible.   The First Connection begins with a one-hour presentation of Jesus Christ and baptism. The Second Connection is a study of basic Bible teachings. The Third Connection applies God’s wisdom to daily living. The Fourth Connection is a study of the entire Bible. Learn more about the Core Curriculum class times here.

Step Three: Group Life

Joining a small group will help you live your faith, find your place in the Christian community, and discover new friendships. As we interact with others, we get to put God’s lessons about Christian love and friendship into practice.

“In our small group, one of the couples was pregnant for the first time and suffered a miscarriage. We could talk about how that happened to us too. We prayed with them and for them. When they baptized their first baby just over a year later, it was as exciting as the baptism of one of our own children.”

 — Peter and Joni (empty nesters)

Step Four: Volunteer

The fourth part of our spiritual growth path is to get involved in volunteer opportunities. Jesus came to serve, and he puts that same desire in each of us. Christians can be forces of good in the world. St. Paul’s offers plenty of opportunities to get involved in our community.
