In person Adult Forum returns October 3 and will also be available on Zoom. The “live” group will be held in the Fellowship Hall, get a cup of coffee and have a seat at one of the tables. If you choose Zoom just stay connected after the Sunday morning service. We anticipate a 10-15 minute break between the end of the postlude and the beginning of Adult Forum.
