Adult Christian Formation
Adult Christian Formation opportunities occur at various times throughout the week, but the most regular gathering takes place on Sunday mornings at 9:45 from September through May. Topics that have recently been explored have included Scripture Study (with guest speakers from local seminaries and colleges), Immigration Issues, Healing from Racism, Spirtual Practices, Issues of Gender Indentity and Human Sexuality, Liturgy, Contemplative Prayer, Social Justice, and Community Engagement.
All are welcome to join in any of these gaterings for conversation and growth.
