The Adult Seminar meets on Sundays at 9AM before worship downstairs in the chapel.
The Adult Seminar continues the decades-long Christ Church tradition of providing a venue for free and open discussion that, as noted in our mission statement, “aims to reflect on what is ultimately important in life” and in so doing to “facilitate the religious understanding and moral practices of those in attendance.”
All are welcome to join the lively discussion. Contact Don Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions.

Pastor’s Conversation: “Hard Topics, Safe Place”
Meets on Sundays at 9:00am before worship in the Naylor Study
Rev. Eric Strader will be inviting conversations around some really difficult topics. We need to have a space to have holy conversations on justice and faith while respecting our differences and learning another’s perspective. This time is both learning the skills of dialogue in difference, while also exploring a faith response to hot topics in our culture.
