Faith Development

Faith development is a life-long persuit.  It requires effort, ongoing study, and prayer.  Faith development reorients us toward others, and helps us find an alternative to the fast lane of life and use our energy to do what we are created to do: to love life, to thank God for the opportunity, and to share our love with others.

There are many resources in the areas of learning about our faith. Below we have included a few websites and podcasts for you to explore to assist in your faith development.
