The mission of the Adult ministry at St. Michael’s is to help people grow and be transformed in their faith in Jesus Christ, to equip them for service through His Word and the Holy Spirit so that we have unity in the Body of Christ, to become a witness to those around us.
There are various studies and groups geared for adults, which you can find below. We also seek to promote interconnection between generations through our childrens, youth, care, and mission ministries. A great way to grow in your faith is to serve and share it with others!
…to prepare God’s people for God’s works of service, so that the Body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. -Ephesians 4:12-14
