Most Sundays, 9-10 am, September--May
Our Sunday morning Adult Forum is designed for people who want to grow in their understanding of the Bible, theology, Christian mission, and how to relate their faith to contemporary life and issues. The Forum meets in the Parlor or Parish Hall of the Church.
ADULT FORUMS IN Winter/Spring 2018
February 18 & 25: The Rev. Lynn Carter-Edmands, Canon for Formation and Transitions, will present the process for the coming transition following the retirement of our rector in August. In preparation for that time, we held conversations in Advent about our values. And in March the congregation will be invited to take a survey that The Rev. Carter-Edmands will explain to participants in the Adult Forum.
February 4, 11, 18, 25, April 8 & 15 (excluding Easter Day on April 1): Dr. Larry Welborn, Professor of New Testament and Early Church History at Fordham University will offer a series entitled Jesus Means Freedom. As Paul told the Galatians, “For freedom Christ has set us free.” The God of the Bible is the One who called a people out of bondage to Pharaoh in Egypt, and who still leads us out of structures of oppression, which constrain the full humanity intended in creation. This series explores the liberating dimensions of Jesus’ ministry: healing, exorcism, proclamation of God’s kingdom, action against the temple, and radical yes-saying to God. The stories of Jesus’ liberating actions open our hearts, leading us to true freedom.
