Spiritual Formation Ministry

Devoted to helping adults become mature, life-long disciples The Spiritual Formation Ministry of FBCM seeks to provide multiple opportunities for all ages to belong, learn, fellowship and serve others. Adults can be shaped in their faith by studying God’s Word, encouraged in their journey through sharing life together with others and equipped in their gifting by growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. No matter which life stage you are in, the following venues are offered for personal and corporate discipleship. We welcome you and invite you to join us in becoming spiritually formed in to the person of Jesus Christ. For more information, contact our Associate Pastor Rev. Philip Vestal at pvestal@mariettafbc.org or 770.424.8326.

L.I.F.E. Seminars

“Learning in Faith with Each Other” happens in annual seminar settings where critical topics such as prayer, parenting, evangelism, finances, and marriage are taught in depth from a Biblical perspective.  Seminars are usually 6-8 weeks in length and are open to all adults interested in learning Christian precepts to life’s most important issues.  To find out when the next seminar is being offered click here

L.I.F.E Groups

“Learning in Faith with Each Other” happens in small groups, where friendships of faith are forged and celebrated. Our L.I.F.E. Groups focus on doing life together with 4-6 couples or 8-10 individuals either at church or in homes and they can meet any day of the week. Our groups are an outreach of FBCM and help support the church at large.  They can be generational or intergenerational and all groups emphasize prayer, discussion, accountability and support for one another in life’s journey. Contact Rev. Philip Vestal at pvestal@mariettafbc.org if you are interested in either leading or participating in a small group. 

L.I.F.E. Retreats

“Learning in Faith with Each Other” happens in settings offsite, away from the stress of life’s demands.  Gathering for a weekend of rest and renewal, adults can be rejuvenated in their life with God through private prayer and Bible study, personal reflection, as well as corporate worship and fellowship.  To find out when the next retreat is being offered click here
