Adult Forum: Sundays at 11:00 AM in the Parish Hall

All persons who desire to deepen their faith through study are invited to attend these lectures on Sunday mornings. Our presenters include St. Anne’s clergy, staff, parishioners and guest speakers who offer expertise from a wide range of specialties.

The lecture series offer a balance of topics from the fields of Biblical Studies, Theology, Music, Ethics, History, Spirituality, and Self-Care. These topics generate discussions about the ways in which Christians engage and embody their faith in the world. All are welcome to attend! Coffee and pastries are served.
