Adults

A place to be formed in the image of Christ for the sake of our neighbors.

We’re committed to creating spaces, in-person and online, where we can be formed to love God and our neighbors more deeply. It takes on lots of shapes, but they’re all intended to help us deepen our journey with Jesus and love for our neighbors.

A community where you'll learn to wrestle with the tensions between the story of God and the stories going on all around us.

Bible Studies & Gatherings.

Meetinghouse Church embraces the call to be formed in the image of Christ for the sake of our neighbors throughout our adult ministries and learning forums, it’s through these opportunities that we stretch and grow our faith while building community with one another. Here’s what’s happening on different days of the week:

Join Courtney Perry as she teaches the 27 subtypes of the Enneagram. Expect lots of insight and a few optional movements as we go through yoga pose variations that represent the qualities of each subtype.

To get the most out of this workshop, we ask that you come with a solid understanding of the Enneagram or attended the Yenneagram Intro workshop.
