Our Adult Education Forums are an opportunity to learn about a variety of topics. Often, they are an opportunity to study scripture in a depth greater than what a sermon allows, but sometimes they are an opportunity to learn about a timely topic of interest to us all.
Unless otherwise noted, our Adult Education Forums are held Sunday mornings at 8:45 a.m.
In the Middle Ages, Europe was on the move: millions of people were involved in religious pilgrimages or the military equivalent – the Crusades.
