Spiritual Formation is all about your journey with God. At Emerywood Baptist we are committed to deepening our relationship with God through a variety of practices, including bible study, spiritual reflection, retreats, small groups, music, and service.
As we study the biblical text, we encourage people to discern their own meaning from the text – we do not impose our own reading of the text. Instead, we encourage discussion and the sharing of different opinions and interpretations so that we can learn from one another as we grow in our understanding and knowledge of God and God’s calling upon our lives.
We also believe that Spiritual Formation does not solely happen within the contexts of studying scripture, but within the larger context of living a life of faith. For this very reason, many of our Bible Study classes and small groups participate in mission and service projects, help lead various worship services, have times of fellowship, and more. Through opportunities such as these, we seek to create an environment where every individual can find a place that fosters spiritual growth of the whole person.
