Adult Forums

At various times throughout the year we schedule Adult Forums to augment our intentional Christian Formation program. Through the insights and wisdom of outside speakers, discussion of contemporary issues seen through the lens of our faith, and conversation about how our beliefs integrate our life as Christians in the world, we are formed and transformed. Adult forums are often held between services on Sunday. Extended programs may be offered on Wednesdays in Lent or Advent.

Adult Forums in recent years include: community organizing for gospel justice, sacred conversations on race and racial justice; webcasts from the Trinity Institute; Creation Care documentary film nights; and Living Water. Our 2018 Lenten program studied “The Book of Common Prayer”. In 2020/2021, we have been participating in the "This Is Sacred Ground", a film-based dialogue series on race & faith. Watch for more information at this page.
