Sunday Forums

Grab a cup of coffee and join us in the Parish Hall during the education hour (10:10-10:50am). Using a variety of formats, including speaker presentations and facilitated discussions, we’ll learn about the practices of the Way of Love, hear about the ways real people are engaging faith in daily life, and learn about the ways God is active in the world outside our doors through partners and justice ministries. Learn more about the 2019-2020 “Way of Love” theme here.
