Learning & Faith Formation

Continued learning is essential to grow your relationship with God. At Bergstrasse we strive to provide for learning in person or online via ZOOM. Learning strengthens us so that we can better serve our neighbor and God with abundant love.

A few of our Learning Opportunities
