New York FW Circle

FW Foundations

Foundations is a NEW way of engaging the Faithwalking process.

Based on feedback from years of Faithwalking practice, Foundations engages the Faithwalking process through Six - 10 week modules that are ALL ONLINE.  The NY/NJ Faithwalking Circle is in partnership with Faithwalking, Inc. You can find more information about Foundations on the main Faithwalking website, by clicking here.  

Leaders from the NY/NJ Faithwalking Circle have been going through Foundations together and recommend it to you!

As we are unable to meet in person (April 2020), NOW is the perfect time to launch Foundations in our circle!

Given the current reality we all face, the NY/NJ Faithwalking Circle is able to offer a deeply discounted rate, subsidized by the Regional Synods of NY and Albany.  Normally, Faithwalking Foundations and Core Four courses (excluding retreat costs) are $175 each.  We are offering two Foundations opportunities for $100 each as we continue through global pandemic.
