The Sunday Morning Forum has a long tradition in our congregation, having met during the hour before Sunday worship services for many years. Forum is an opportunity for informal group discussion on a variety of topics in a stimulating but warm and nurturing atmosphere. Usually, Forum consists of a presentation by a member of the congregation or a guest speaker, followed by group discussion. Topics range from issues of religion and spirituality to social and political topics to book discussions to practical concerns of everyday life. Participation is on a drop-in basis -- you don't have to sign up to participate, and you can come on some Sundays and not on others. The numbers vary, but there are usually about 25-30 in attendance. Everyone is welcome!
Forum meets from 9:00am - 10:00am in Room 101/103 at the church. Please use the back entrance to the building by the red mailbox nearest the offices (south side of the building near the playground). Prompt assembly is a courtesy to our facilitators. Childcare is available in the church nursery. Drive around to the right of the church to the parking spaces at the rear. The back door will be open and Forum can be found down the first hall to your right. We will meet you at the door and show you to the Forum room. Everyone is welcome! Forum Coordinators are Professors Jim Anderson and R. Mark French.
