Here at Freemason Street, we seek to become a School of Christian Formation for all children, youth and adults – a nurturing environment in which we can be rooted in order to receive the light, life, and love of God so that we might become the presence of Christ for our world. On this journey, we have benefited from a variety of print or online resources that you may also find enlightening.
Jesus says, “Let the children come to me and don’t hinder them, for the kingdom of the heavens belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
Here at Freemason Street, we aim to do more than programming. Instead, we seek to support parents in their role as the primary spiritual nurturers of their children. The goal of our family ministry is to help you find ways to talk about spiritual things with your children and help you center your lives on God’s presence. We are working hard at empowering you to model faith at home and to use teachable moments and intentional practices to positively nurture your children in spirituality.
“Don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity”. (1 Timothy 4:12)
Let’s face it. It’s hard to be a teenager. Friends. School. Parents. Future. Questions. Change.
At Freemason Street we recognize that life is a swirl of joy and heartache but we hope we will be awake enough to see God in the middle of it all. We strive to create an environment of welcome and trust so that youth feel safe enough to ask the hard questions and stick around long enough to seek the answers.
Through Bible study, prayer, fellowship, service, and worship we more clearly see how God’s good news in Jesus Christ changes us and changes our world when we are willing to become good news.
“Speaking the truth in love, we will grow up to become in every way the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.” (Ephesians 4:15)
There are levels and stages of faith, and here at Freemason Street we attempt to provide opportunities for you wherever you are on your spiritual journey. Through a variety of classes, small groups, workshops and retreats we seek to nurture the spiritual development of our faith community, guests and other seekers (1) by providing an effective educational ministry in light of Jesus who is our prophet, teacher, healer, and liberator and (2) by providing an integrative spiritual formation program in light of the contemplative Christian tradition.
