Adult Forums

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, one of the decisive movements in Christian history. The Rev. Dr. David True, Professor of Religion at Wilson College, will teach a series on this monumental event of Western civilization, Three Keys of Reformed Faith, on the following Sundays:

August 6 – Reforming Worship

The Protestant Reformation is sometimes said to boil down to a debate about the sacraments. We’ll consider the different viewpoints and what they suggest for us today.

August 13 – Reforming the Life of Faith

We’ll revisit the Reformation’s startling consequences for the shape and content of the Christian life.

August 20 – Reforming Society

We’ll consider the different visions of society and politics that emerged in the Reformation and their relevance today.

Hometown favorite Jonathan Hays presents a captivating recital with the beautiful singing we have all come to know and love. The New York Times said of Jonathan: “the nobility of his voice matched the nobility of his bearing and his singing was consistently strong, lucid, direct and bang on the note. His was a magnificent performance,” and Opera Magazine stated “he has a lovely baritone, nicely placed and warmly resonant but capable of taut edginess.”
