During the program year (Sept. through April), we offer Sunday morning adult education sessions after worship and fellowship time. Most weeks feature guest speakers whose topics range from immigration policy to recycling practices. Topics and speakers are posted here in advance.
During the pandemic, we're offering weekly Adult Ed sessions via zoom, every Sunday morning at 11:15. Join us!

branches? Remember the palms waving in celebration? Remember the donkey on
which Jesus road into town – intentionally countering the military parades on
horseback that ruled the cities and region. We’ll remember it all with some
fun, inviting all to: “Come walk the red carpet, have your palm read, and
