Spiritual Formation &
Spiritual Formation at CHBC is about guiding and nurturing each person to more nearly and fully "walk in the way of Jesus." We strive to teach the Biblical Story, to impart the Christian heritage, and to nurture this faith community in being the people of God.
Among the ways we seek to discern what it means to walk with God are various classes that meet on Sunday morning from 9:30 until 10:30. The classes include:
