EL Spiritual Formation Groups begin in September!

Would you like to join a Spiritual Formation group?  Equipping Lydia (EL) offers spiritual formation groups as a safe place where people of faith can encounter the love of Jesus together through quiet, prayerful contemplation and sharing. Our hearts long to become a reflection of the One we love.  This gathering, focused on the forming of our spirits, helps us reflect the light and love of Christ.
