Adult Faith Formation 


The Intersection of Faith and Mental Health

May 14 - June 4 at 9 a.m. in the Trinity Room
Faith and mental health are not mutually exclusive, in fact, they are complementary. Health and wholeness include all parts of a human being -- mental, physical and spiritual. Come be with us as we discuss how faith and mental health intersect each other and how all age groups are affected by disease and trauma.

May 14: PTSD and Trauma Informed Therapy with Corinne Secrest
May 21: Mental Health in Families with Dan Kealy
May 28: Faith and the Aging Brain with Tom Vallie
June 4: Faith and Our Mental Health, with Betsy White, Western Carolina NAMI Board President

Sunday School for Adults - Ministry Leader: The Rev. Christie Walton

Adult Sunday School is called Christian Formation and focuses on theology, introspective reflection, and how our faith calls us to fight for justice in the world. We gather each Sunday from 9-9:45 a.m. in the Trinity Room and online.
