Fellowship in Faith for Adults

Sundays from 10am to 11am

The Dean's Forum

Each Sunday morning there is an opportunity for adults to come together during Fellowship in Faith for spiritual conversation around diverse topics. Come and join an open and supportive conversation in which you will find yourself uplifted and encouraged on your spiritual journey. It is not necessary to make it to every session. Enough context is provided each week for you to join the conversation whenever you are able to attend.

Details on upcoming Dean's Forums are listed below.
