Faith_Formation_collage_smAdult Faith Formation

At Myers Park Baptist (MPBC), we believe that our paths — though different — are intertwined; continually overlapping and creating common ground where we can comfortably walk together.

Our philosophy of adult faith formation goes far beyond offering morning Sunday school classes, though we have a rich offering of those, as well. We’ve designed a variety of educational opportunities that reflect our commitment to building a strong community of faith — all week long and for a lifetime.

We value connectedness that leads us deeper into life with God and with one another, lifelong learning where all people wrestle with the paradoxes and promises of our faith, and growth through wisdom that leads to becoming better lovers of God, self, and others.

We want every person who comes to MPBC to feel enriched in body, mind and spirit. We invite you to take a look at what’s happening and then get connected socially and spiritually!

Jesus the Christ in the 21st Century Lectures (J21)  
Initially focused on the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth, the series has expanded to explore a wide range of issues and perspectives related to individual and community faith formation. Every October a nationally-known theologian leads a weekend of spiritual discussions and explorations. Friday evenings and Sunday sermons are free, weekend workshops require registration and a small fee. These workshops often sell out.
