Chatham Formation Classes - Fall 2023

Chatham Formation Classes are designed to offer comprehensive spiritual formation through teaching and training. We use this time to make disciples of Jesus through four core areas of instruction, including Sound Doctrine, Christian Vocation, Spiritual Practices and Missional Living. We also utilize this time for prayer, fellowship, ministry connections and more throughout the year.

Our fall session runs from September 10-November 19. See special dates and class options below.

All classes and events begin at 9 a.m. unless otherwise noted, and everyone is welcome to attend unless prior registration is required. A lift is available in the gym for upstairs access. See children's class details on our Kids & Youth page.

All kids' and adult classes will take a break for Thanksgiving weekend, and we'll enjoy a time of food and fellowship in the Activity Center starting at 9 a.m.

  • American Church History

    Led by Pastor Sergei, Fellowship Room upstairs

    This fall, we will learn about the major leaders and movements in the American church since the first British colonists came to the New World until the 20th century. Come learn from the victories and failures of our spiritual ancestors.

  • Gospel Shaped Work

    Led by Mark Hickle, Room 24/25 Upstairs

    Many Christians have a dualistic approach to life. We have our church life and then our work life, which are pretty separate. But God created us to be workers. To till the soil. To subdue creation. To be his representatives in the world. And we flourish when we work as God intended. This class will help us discover how to not only connect Monday to Sunday, but how to put the gospel at the heart of everything we do at work

  • Children's Ministry Class

    Led by Tom & Sarah Levanos, Room 22 Upstairs

In our final sessions, you will prepare and present a short lesson. Class size limited to 12 participants ages 15+, and attendees must commit to all sessions.
