Lifelong Learning

COS is a place for conversation and learning about our faith and traditions.


Vision and Goals for Lifelong Learning

Our programs are designed to nurture life long growth in Christian faith and practice with the intention of bringing us into a loving relationship with with God and one another.  There are three emphases:

1. Learning the content of the Christian faith and practice, especially as it equips us for the demands and challenges of daily life.

2. To offer inspiration, encouragement and support for one’s relationship with God.

3. To develop genuine spiritual friendships that strengthen our experience of community.

We look to a future in which we are a community of disciples growing in intimacy with God and radiating Christ’s life giving and life changing presence in the world.
