What is Seasons of the Spirit?

Seasons of the Spirit is one inclusive program for the whole congregation. Seasons of the Spirit supports faith communities and families in their life together by

  • exploring meaning and mystery in the Bible
  • being grounded in thoughtful theology
  • empowering children, youth, and adults to be transformed in Christ
  • inspiring and equipping leaders
  • nurturing the imaginative spirit
  • offering resources for all ages
  • integrating worship, learning, and serving ministries

"Seasons' vision is for an authentic Christianity lived in our culturally diverse and religiously pluralistic world; to be signs of God’s liberating, compassionate, and inclusive love, and to grow in our relationship with God. Seasons continues to nurture faith through liturgy, ritual, imagination, and to encourage Christian growth through worshipping, learning, and serving together. Our true curriculum is how we live our lives together."

~ Susan Burt, Coordinating Editor, Seasons of the Spirit
