Join us on Sunday mornings for engaging adult programming.
Explore, learn, grow.
Sunday morning seminars are a great way to get to know other church members with similar interests. Seminars convene most Sundays during the school year from 10:25 a.m.–11:15 a.m. and cover topics from parenting to social justice and everything in between. You do not need to pre-register for these programs, just come prepared to listen and learn!
