Adult Forum via Zoom
September 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The religious environment of the United States is changing rapidly and dramatically. Affiliation with religious institutions is declining, dipping below fifty percent. Pollsters discover that a pervasive lack of interest in spirituality is increasing in younger generations. Protestantism is divided along “red state/blue state” lines. Consumerism, self-advancement, and worldly success appear to have become the effective religion of large portions of the population. In this environment of accelerating polarization, secularism, and religious indifference, many of the faithful are worried about the future of the church. We will explore the ways in which new styles of being the church may be necessary to grapple with our shifting cultural context.
We offer Sunday morning Sunday School for adults, youth, and children at 8:45 am. At other times we present Adult Education Forums as 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. Adult Education Forums are being held during September on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. Here is the Zoom link if you would like to join us:
