Asking questions about God, faith, or the Church? Lifelong Christian? Every faith journey is unique. The WAY encourages, challenges and invites a deeper life of faith. Contact Pastor Hoffman if you’d like to be a part of this year’s class.
Before the first followers of Jesus were known as Christians, they were called “People of The WAY.” Then, and now, The WAY refers to a style of life in which both believing and living are centered in Jesus Christ.
At Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church, The WAY is an opportunity for your faith to be explored, nurtured, and renewed, your commitment to Jesus Christ affirmed, and your walk as a disciple of Christ to be established or re-established in the life-giving waters of Holy Baptism or the Affirmation of Baptism.
Sunday evening meetings begin in October and end with a beautiful Advent Celebration in early December. The autumn meetings explore topics of interest such as scripture, worship, prayer, and sacraments.
Sunday evening meetings resume in early January. In both small and large group conversations, participants continue to explore the presence of God in the world and in daily life.
Throughout the weeks of Lent, participants “dig deeper” into the Biblical stories that prepare for Baptism and Affirmation of Baptism at the Vigil of Easter.
After Easter, The WAY looks toward the practice of living the Christian life as we explore faithful responses to care for the earth, for humankind, relationships and daily work.
People have been welcomed to the life-giving waters of baptism and to the affirmation of baptism through The WAY for over 15 years. Here’s what they have to say…
The WAY extends Christian practices and embeds these practices into the lives of the participants, and therefore, into the fabric of the Church.
We will treasure our experiences and are grateful for the warm welcome to the Phinney Ridge community, the mentoring and gentle guidance and the inspired and prayerful approach that we have been lucky to experience.
We are better people for having participated in The WAY and look forward to many years of prayer and service together.
Please contact Pastor Paul Hoffman if you have any additional questions about The WAY and membership at Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church.
