Lenten Adult Education – Conversations on our Theological Diversity

While we describe ourselves as a diverse congregation, we may not often take time to discuss our differences. Each Sunday at 11 a.m. during Lent we will have a conversation about an aspect of faith in a safe place where all may freely and openly share their beliefs and listen carefully to others. Please plan to attend.
