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 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).

Check out the classes below and consider joining one of them. These classes are on Sundays beginning October 2nd. Come with an open and teachable heart. All classes will end on November 20th.

SUNDAYS

Philippians begins October 2 at 9am
Led by Brien Hatch in room 112.
Philippians was written by Paul from a Roman prison. In this letter, we are challenged to “Rejoice in the Lord always.” How is this possible? Can our attitude be “the same as that of Christ Jesus”? Some of the most significant descriptions of Jesus in all of scripture are found in this letter!
We need joy and discernment as we learn to live for God in today’s world. I hope you can join me in studying the book of Philippians.
Daniel, Chapters 1-6, begins October 2 at 9am
Led by Harold & Linda McCoy in Fellowship Hall.
In the first six chapters of Daniel, we learn of a group of God’s people who were exiled in the land of Babylon. As characterized in Isaiah, Babylon’s culture was one of “I am, and there is none besides me.” Does that description sound like the western culture of today? Join us as we explore how a few of God’s men
navigated this self-centered culture and remained faithful to God as God remained faithful to them. We will discover how to apply those examples to our lives in the culture we live in today. We’d love to have you come and join us on this journey!
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day By Day begins October 2 at 9am
Led by Kim Marshall and Stephanie fowler in room 117.
This class will be an intentional time for women to connect and be encouraged as we journey through 40 days of being with Jesus. If you were a part of the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality class last fall, this will be a scaled back version of that class. We are excited to learn and grow together, share our challenges, and pray for one another as we seek to have a deeper relationship with Jesus.
 
“In this groundbreaking devotional book, Peter Scazzero introduces the ancient spiritual discipline of the Daily Office. The basic premise of the Daily Office is simple: We need to intentionally stop to be with God more than once a day so that practicing the presence of God becomes real in our lives." -Peter Scazzero
