New Groups for Faith Formation Begin at Pleasant Hill Community Church

Using Brian D. McLaren’s book We Make the Road by Walking one or more groups will gather on Zoom or in-person and be guided by Pastor Houston Hall on a fifty-two (plus a few) weekly readings that can each be read in 10 to 12 minutes. The series offer a simple curriculum of insightful reflections and transformative practices. Organized around the traditional church year, these readings give an overview of the whole Bible and guide an individual or a group of friends through a year of rich study, interactive learning, and personal growth.

These groups will:

  • Cultivate an honest, intelligent understanding of the Bible and of Christian faith in 21st century
  • Engage with discussion questions designed to challenge, stimulate, and encourage
  • Reimagine what it means to live joyfully and responsibly in today’s world as agents of God’s justice, creativity, and peace

If you’re seeking a fresh way to experience and practice your faith, if you’re a long-term Christian seeking new vitality, or if you feel out of place in traditional church circles, this book will inspire and activate you in your spiritual journey. You may also join the Facebook group  We make the Road by Walking.
