Following the Time with Children in worship, children are invited to learn and play in their classrooms: K-2nd grade in the Lions Room and 3rd-5th grade in the Leopards Room. Please pick up children promptly following worship.

During the school year, children are invited to learn music before worship (at 10:15).

Adult Sunday School classAdult Sunday School   

The Theology of Radical Love class will meet in the Community Room from 9:15 – 10:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings from September 11-October 2nd. The class will explore how our faith affects our understandings of sexuality and gender, and how our understandings of gender and sexuality affect our faith.

According to queer theology, radical love is at the heart of both the LGBTQ community and Christianity, creating a kinship where too often both sides have felt a divide. Whoever we are and however we identify, how might the concept of radical love inform our experiences of God, Jesus, the church, and one another?

Beginning October 9th, there will be a class on environmental justice. A November interfaith series will continue conversations from our workshop on Islamophobia and Sitting at God’s Table documentary viewing earlier this summer.  A series on white privilege is being planned for the spring.

Other educational and spiritual formation classes meet seasonally, or for short series, throughout the year — sometimes at church and sometimes in local coffee shops or breweries. We welcome everyone’s voice and presence!
