Adult Forum is an opportunity for education, reflection and discussion of various topics, offered after the worship service most Sundays during the fall, winter and spring. A variety of topics are presented including, but not limited to, social issues, community needs, mission projects, environmental concerns and discussions of religious topics including the faith journey of each of us.
Anyone who has an interest, including those who are not members of First Presbyterian, are welcome to attend any or all of the forums.
