Adult Faith Formation

GCC’s Adult Faith Formation programs explore a wide range of topics, from practical spirituality to historical theology, to contemporary events from a faith perspective. Adult education at GCC is designed to engage the church members and the wider community in spiritual growth and constructive change.

Tom Amos speakers forum

The Tom Amos Speakers Forum offers a monthly presentation on a variety of topics. These events are free and open to the public. In the 2023-2024 season, we hosted forums on Teenage Mental Health, Information Literacy, Glenview History, Interfaith Relations, and more! Stay tuned for the announcement of our 2024-2025 line up.

This program runs September-April.  All events are held on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. in GCC’s Upper Commons. Use the west parking lot and west entrance.

Spiritual Life Center

The Spiritual Life Team Ministry is based on a comprehensive interfaith research study on the nature of Spiritual Life in faith communities, designed and conducted by Rev. Bobbie McKay, Ph.D.  A licensed psychologist, Rev. McKay is Pastoral Associate for Spiritual Life at GCC.

Designed by Rev. McKay, the Spiritual Life Team Ministry provides a safe space for people to share their spiritual lives and grow in their ability and comfort with prayer.  The Spiritual Life Team Ministry is a unique and powerful opportunity to learn to identify and share God moments and prayers with others in an entirely safe environment.

Teams meet for one hour each month.  The teams concentrate on developing an understanding of spiritual life both as individuals and as members of a Spiritual Life Team. To date, teams have been all-female, all-male, and couples. If you are interested in joining a spiritual life team contact the church office.
