Sundays | 9:30 – 10:45 am | Room 310

Check out this great Adult Education discussion group meeting on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am in Room 310!

Some weeks the group watches TED Talks together; other weeks presenters bring in interesting and inspiring ideas. And, regardless of the inspiration, we then set aside time every week to discuss the issues presented.

Topics cover a wide range of issues and ideas — which open us up to the encouraging work of people who address problems, as well as our own power and possibilities to participate in change.

Watch our website and Facebook page for the presentations and conversations coming up each week to help you  find Spirit in every facet of your life!
