Adult Studies

Adult Classes are on summer vacation.  This Fall, we will be addressing the inescapable realities of aging and death in our discussion of Being Mortal, bestselling author Atul Gawande's book on medicine and what matters in the end. 

Adults meet in the St. Marie Parlor most Sunday mornings during the school year to engage contemporary Christian issues and our traditions. 

Visit Pastor Kelly’s Pinch of Salt blog.
