First Church will hold a spiritual formation gathering, based on the Gospel of Luke, this Advent season.

A spiritual formation gathering is based on the principle of meeting with no other goal than to be in the presence of God by praying the Scriptures. Participants are encouraged to experience God’s presence through reading, meditation, prayer and contemplation. If you want to read more about Christianity, then go to
