Adult Forum

For the month of February the Adult Forum, meeting on Sunday mornings at 9:30, will be taking a look at the two New Testament letters addressed to the church at Thessalonica. We will focus on what a faith community of long ago has to say to us, the church today. Hopefully you will be surprised and hopeful as we consider how to live out the Apostle Paul’s teachings as Christian men and women of the 21st century. Please join us beginning this Sunday morning and throughout the month of February as we open our minds and hearts to God’s Word for the living of our days.  Meet at 9:30 outside the nursery door.
