The Search

What are YOU looking for?

The Search is a multi-part video based spiritual experience from the producers of Formed.org.  The production is beautiful; none of this “fake library” feeling to it.  The well-known Catholic evangelist Chris Stefanick (Reboot, Real Life Catholic) hosts The Search.

But The Search is not meant just to be watched . . . and it’s certainly not meant to be watched alone.  That’s why we are beginning to form small groups – both in-person and virtual – to watch, discuss, and truly benefit and grow from experiencing The Search.

• If your faith is already solid, The Search will help you to deepen it. If you’re feeling unsure, it’s for you too.  If you’re worried about your kids or grandkids, it’s a great series for you to share with them -- by bringing them along.

• The Search features scientists, artists, philosophers, and other people from all walks of life proclaiming how their searches for meaning in life led them to Jesus and the Gospel.

• There’s nothing quite like it in the Catholic world.  The Search proclaims the Gospel in words that modern ears are ready to hear and images that modern eyes can’t help but see and remember.

• Do you have young adult children that have left the faith or have become lukewarm?  Most likely they would never come with you to Church for a video series, but you can bring it to them in their own homes! It can be watched any day, time of day.  This series does not get "religious" until the 4th episode; it begins exploring general life questions.  

We will be offering multiple in-person and online group opportunites.  We also encourage YOU to form your own groups of family and friends.  Be brave - ask your book club, your running group, your Moms group, your Bunco club to do something new!  We have booklets to guide your discussion and the staff will be happy to help you get started.
