Lifelong learning for adults is part of the core value of Central Lutheran Church.

Lifelong Faith Formation for Adults

Adult Formation in Lent

The theme for Lent this year is “Welcomed and Fed.” We will enter into a time of intentional conversation on baptism, confession and holy communion through the lens of Martin Luther’s Small Catechism.

  • March 5: Welcomed and Fed:  Baptism – Led by Pastor C
  • March 12: Welcomed and Fed:  Baptism – Led by Pastor Stephanie
  • March 19: Welcomed and Fed: Forgiveness – Led by Pastor Peter
  • March 26: Welcomed and Fed: Holy Communion – Led by Pastor Melissa

Lenten Small Groups

You are invited to sign up at the church office to join a Lenten Small Group. Small groups in the season of Lent are one way to grow in faith and community as people “welcomed and fed” by God. Here is how it works: you can gather friends and sign up as your own small group, or you can sign up and we will place you in a small group (most likely by geography). You and your small group will meet three times. The key is, these small groups will not meet at Central, it is a faith formation process centered in God, but de-Centralized. All the material will be provided, and Pastor Peter will lead an orientation for the leader of your small group. The small groups can begin meeting any time after March 12.
