The Adult Forum
Each Sunday morning from 10 to 11 a.m. St Paul’s offers programming that examines our yearly theme and current issues, seeking to connect our beliefs with our experience. Other programs outside the themes are offered throughout the year, including Spirituality, Parenting, guest theologians, current events, and art and music.
Video recordings of some of our forum sessions and series are available on St Paul’s YouTube Channel.
