Forum for All (previously known as Adult Forum)
We are adopting a new name but maintaining the same mission of bringing discussions of interest to the congregation most Sundays after the church service. The term “Adult Forum” was first used when there was an adult Sunday school class offered while the children and youth were in their Sunday school classes. Over the years the focus has at times been on strictly faith-based content and in more recent years this has evolved into a time during which many topics of interest in the community and world, including preservation of our earth, as well as some very thought provoking DVD series discussions have occurred. The schedule shows we will continue to have a variety of topics offered. Thus far our schedule includes the following:
September 1 – no forum
September 8 – no forum – Sundae Sunday – Rally Day Sunday
September 15 – Bruce Krawisz speaking to the health impact of global warming – sponsored by the local Green Team
September 22 – Outreach Highlights
September 29 – Kathy Meyer – “Everyone Needs a Community”, an initiative to provide affordable housing and other activities for adults older than 55 who have autistic spectrum symptoms.
October 6 – Mark Borchardt – Water quality and related health issues, sponsored by the local Green Team
October 13 – It’s Complicated: Let’s Talk About Reproductive Justice.
This three-week series will provide an opportunity for us to practice as a community of faith how to study and discuss a politically difficult and sensitive topic of our time, drawing upon biblical, theological, historical and spiritual resources. We expect and will respect the diversity of opinions that we hold within our faith community. This first series in October will consider the topic of reproductive justice.
October 20 – It’s Complicated: Let’s Talk About Reproductive Justice.
October 27 – It’s Complicated: Let’s Talk About Reproductive Justice.
All members of the community are welcome to join us for any of these topics. If you would like, join us for the church service at 9:30, obtain a cup of coffee provided for fellowship after church and join us in the parlor from 10:50 – 12:00 for the presentation. Questions/requests for topics may be directed to Nadene Lautenschlager – email@example.com or 715-384-5217.
