Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Community

Formation in Congregational Life

Formation in congregational life extends far beyond Sunday worship. Liturgy is a formational experience which invites the community to “Go forth into the world”, but the work of hospitality, outreach, in-service, stewardship, evangelism, and other ministries is how we live out our Baptismal Covenant. Formational learning opportunities nurture this work.


Best Practices
Dioceses and congregations have developed outstanding faith formation programs and resources.


Small Group Formation
Creating sacred and safe gathering opportunities for small groups is an excellent way of empowering congregations to become communities of transformation.


Bible Studies
Whether as an individual or participating in a group, studying the ancient text can be thought-provoking, transformative and enjoyable.
