Faith Formation

  • Join us at 7:00 pm Wednesdays in November for a five-week series, Conversations on Our Faith: deep discussions about our faith and how we live it. 

  • It’s a wrap! It was a great week at Creation Care camp! 24 kids participated, up from 16 last year! Thanks to the children who participated, to the parents and grandparents who brought them, and to the volunteers and staff who made it happen.

  • Faith Formation is excited to announce an affiliate ministry for our broader community, the Peer Philosophy Group for Young Adults.

  • The Faith Formation Board of First Congregational Church of Bellingham maintains a small special interest library in the church. The collection focuses on books about the bible, Christian history, theology, and social action.

  • The Membership Board, collaborating with the Faith Formation Board is pleased to invite members and friends of 1st Congregational Church to engage six vital themes of our faith during Lent.  This Zoom discussion will be held on Wednesdays from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.

  • The Faith Formation Board is pleased to announce the 2023 All Church Read. Our chosen book is Speak with the Earth and It will Teach You by Daniel Cooperrider. It is an analysis of the Bible’s treatment of nature. It is a timely work on the gift of the Earth that makes a strong case for environmental conservation as a cornerstone of religious life.
