Adult Faith Formation

Learning and growing in faith is not for children and youth only! Spiritual maturity is a lifelong endeavor. As we grow in understanding of our faith, our relationship with God deepens. We are more able to experience God’s promises of peace, hope and wholeness. We hear more clearly God’s call for our lives, and we receive God’s guidance for the journey. Scripture reveals levels of meaning, sparks new ideas, and takes on new relevance in our lives. Here are some of the adult faith formation groups available at CUMC: 

Christian Meditation

CUMC’s meditation group meets every Tuesday evening from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Meditation is a time to quiet our minds and go beyond words, thoughts and images into the presence of God and the indwelling Spirit. While it is often associated with eastern spiritual practices such as Buddhism, meditation is also deeply rooted in Christian tradition. Whether you have practiced meditation or are exploring for the first time, all are welcome.

At Coralville UMC we affirm people of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, gender identities, sexual orientations, physical and mental abilities, and socio-economic status. We believe that prejudice, hatred, or discrimination directed toward any individual or group is contrary to the life and spirit of Jesus Christ.  Therefore, we shall work to eliminate prejudice and discriminatory practices within ourselves and our community, and to show grace, in Jesus’ name.

We stand together in solidarity with the family of George Floyd and with people of color in our congregation, our communities, and around the world.
