Provocative and thoughtful conversations are intended to spark your imagination and help participants explore the full spectrum of faith and life.  Guest speakers and featured presenters on a whole range of topics are scheduled and curated by the Adult Ed Committee.  Often the topics are intended to complement the stories that are explored in worship or other areas of our life together.

Sunday Forum takes place 9:40-10:40am on Sunday mornings.  We will gather in the reception room, enabling us to broadcast our presentations and discussions, using Zoom for those who prefer to connect remotely (see the link above).  Frequently, these sessions will also be recorded and available for viewing later.

Click here for a video tutorial if you are unfamiliar with connecting via Zoom.  Note, this does require that you install an application on the device you plan to use (desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone) so you’ll want to be prepared in advance of our scheduled meeting time.
