Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in faith. It is the work of Christ in our hearts transforming how we think, how we live, and how we relate to God and others. At OroNaz, we desire to help our people grow. One way we do that is by offering a selection of eight-week Christian Formation classes each Spring and Fall  specifically designed to promote growth in the following three areas:

1) Learning the story of God (developing biblical literacy)
2) Living out the story of God (practically in relationships, finances, parenting, etc.)
3) Expanding the story of God (maturing and making disciples).

Next classes begin Sunday, March 17. Please choose a class that interests you from the descriptions that follow and come to learn and grow together with us.

Our Scripture Memory class has been meeting now for several months, and we are amazed at what God is doing in us to grow us up into His likeness. We are enjoying studying God’s Word together and sharing how it is transforming our thinking about life and about God. We’re finding our hearts are being knit together with one another and with the Lord as we enjoy listening to each other share what God is showing us from His Word.

We would like to invite you to join us. We will be happy to share with you what we’re learning. We’ll help you learn some strategies to plant God’s Word in your mind, we’ll share our struggles, challenges and successes in coming to understand God’s heart as He has revealed it in His Word, the Bible. Come and join us. I’m sure you will be glad you did!

Church hurt can take a lot of forms. From harsh or rude comments from a pastor or church leader, or even a church member, to religious systems that are rigid and focus on condemnation without grace, to church “cliques” that seem exclusive and leave you feeling left out, excluded and isolated, to moral failings, and pastoral abuse to you, your family or someone in your church.

All of these can leave deep wounds and can become things that hold us back. They can keep us from trusting and entering into the freedom Jesus has for us. It is possible to get free! In this class we will explore that together! I hope you will join us!

Titus, Philemon, and Jude are some of Paul’s shortest letters, but they contain important lessons for us to live by today. I invite you to join me in studying these lesser known New Testament Books. They provide instructions about faith and conduct. These letters also give warnings about false teachers and teachings that must be avoided so we can continue to be guided by Grace!

In this class we will be reading and discussing a book that changed my life. The book is titled, Walk with Me by Hal Perkins. This book is practical and very deep. We will learn together how to daily walk with Jesus as His disciples and disciple-makers and will also learn simple tools to hear His voice in His Word, in His people, and by His Spirit. A past General Superintendent of the Church of the Nazarene, Jerry Porter, stated it very well when he commented on Hal's book this way, "Intentional discipleship means each of us answering two questions, 'Who are you discipling? and Who is discipling you?' Perkins has given us a powerful missional tool that will help us to fulfill the Great Commission personally."  
Please see Barry at the Connection Center to purchase your book ($7) and get information on preparing for the first class.
