The purpose of this project is to introduce lectio divina as a tool to enhance spiritual formation of believers in Living Stone Christian Church (LSCC) in a Sunday school class setting. In a series of seven classes, a group of LSCC believers practiced lectio divina after they were instructed. The participants were asked to fill out the pre-session questionnaires in the beginning of the first class, the weekly self-evaluation forms from the second class to the seventh class, and the post-session questionnaires at the end of the last class. Statistical studies on the comparison of the two questionnaires and correlation analysis on the weekly self-evaluation forms reveal that lectio divina enhanced satisfactorily the spiritual formation process of the participants.
