Christian Formation for Adults

DSC02931.JPG

Whether in Sunday school, small groups, or even in individual study, we strive to think critically about our faith—by examining the Scriptures, delving into book studies, and sharing our observations with one another. 

 

Members take an active role in shaping class content and leading groups, participating in challenging discussion, scriptural engagement, and, ultimately, fellowship.

Explorers Forum

Explorers enjoy discussions on a wide-ranging of topics including current events, political, social, and theological issues. Join us for coffee and fellowship before or after in the Parlor/Lounge. Everyone is invited to participate as we laugh, learn, and grow together.

See the schedule below. Archive recordings of the presentations and discussions from fall 2020 through 2022 can be found here: archives.

Stories of Gratitude.

It’s a spiritual practice – going to work every day in the pursuit of justice, with our young people and the institutions that support them. So when I am feeling especially challenged and filled with doubt, I remember why it’s called a practice – and I practice on.
