Adult Studies and Activities

By gathering together to study and discuss or to share a meal and an activity, we learn from scripture and from each other. We grow in faith and understanding. And we have fun! We support each other and others in our efforts to live as joyful disciples of Christ.

Studies and Discussion Groups

September – May

The Forum meets weekly on Sunday mornings from 9:15 – 10:15 a.m. in the Copper Chimney Lounge. There will be a variety of facilitators and studies throughout the year.

Living the Questions
September – May

Living the Questions is a progressive alternative to studies that attempt to give participants all the answers and instead strives to create an environment where participants can interact with one another in exploring what’s next for Christianity.
