Sunday Mornings

Programs are offered for adults throughout the year at various times. Often short classes are offered that run for a few weeks to offers a special topics focus. There are two classes that run throughout the year:

Parlor Class – discusses a range of topics and typically requires no preparation to participate. For Fall 2021, they are meeting at 9:00 in the Parlor.

The Adult Bible Study – meets via Zoom due to Covid concerns at 11:30 to allow folks to get home from service. The Fall 2021 study is a dive into the Gospel of John. Zoom link can be found on the Member Dashboard.

Small Groups

We love to gather in smaller groups to form more intimate bonds with each other. Our small groups are based on shared interests and change their topics of study on a rotating basis. Some groups meet during the day while others get together in the evenings. Two groups that are always open to new members are:

Lunch and Learn – meets on Monday from 12:00-1:00 via Zoom. Fall 2021 the class is discussing The Book of Joy by Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama. A new topic will begin in January. Zoom link is found on the Member Dashboard.

Wednesday Word – this class currently mirrors the Adult Sunday School. We are studying the Gospel of John at 12:00-1:00 on Wednesdays via Zoom – link on Member Dashboard.
