  • Adult Forum
This group examines a wide range of contemporary religious issues and topics. Through discussion of current books on a variety of spiritual topics, the Bible, and other curriculum materials, we aim to enrich our spiritual lives and increase our discipleship. Usually four to six separate studies of various length are scheduled each year.  All are open to any adults who are interested. The Forum meets at 9:35 on Sunday mornings from mid-September through Labor Day..

Topics studied last year were the Apostle Paul - his life and thought, his journeys and the role of women in the early church. Incorporated into the study were videos made by Adam Hamilton based on his book The Call, and filmed in 2014 in the actual places where Paul traveled. Also studied were the thirteen Apostles. All are welcome for as few or as many Sundays as you are able to attend.
