Spirituality is a way of being. It is a journey. At National Avenue Christian Church, we pursue a new kind of progressive spirituality. We embrace traditional worship, but we encourage doubt and informality. We raise intellectual questions, but we thrive on authenticity and honesty. We root ourselves in the richness of the Christian tradition, and we recognize God’s truth in all its diverse forms. We’re not afraid to be imperfect. The truth is, there is no one path, but we all walk together. Wherever you are on your faith journey, you’ll find a place here.
We have several new opportunities for spiritual formation coming. Here are some highlights:
Spiritual Formation Opportunities Abound!

Tina Moore will be leading a discussion of Take This Bread by Sara Miles. Join us as we share about our faith, as Sara says, “Faith, for me, isn’t an argument, a catechism, a philosophical “proof.” It is instead a lens, a way of experiencing life, and a willingness to act.”
The next gathering will be Sunday October 20th at 6pm in the parlor. Please email Tina Moore email@example.com with any questions and to let her know you are interested. Child care can be provided if arranged ahead of time.
Please join us as we have an intimate conversation about the the ways we experience life and are called to act.
