Learning for Adults
United Church of Christ-Congregational has many groups for learning and developing faith. New groups are started or groups evolve as members define them. Adults can select from a range of offerings such as Bible study, forums to study timely and issue-oriented topics, and women’s spirituality. Join any group for enlightening and supportive learning.
Learning Center (Sundays, 9:30 a.m.)
An adult forum on contemporary faith-related topics meets in Fellowship Hall during the Sunday School hour. The group chooses topics for presentation and discussion. Presenters are from the congregation and the community. The Learning Center started in 1972 as a family Christian Education program and has developed into an adult forum.
