Adult members and friends gather in Rockwood Hall at 9:15 a.m. each Sunday during the program year for presentations and conversations. These lively sessions include Bible study, a look at current social issues, and opportunities to reflect together on faith and life . We respect questions and honor the thoughts and opinions of all people. Past years have included series on science and religion, archeology and the Bible, the Reformation, and a discussion about the novel Lila with Marilynne Robinson. Join us in Rockwood Hall any Sunday or every Sunday for timely, intelligent, and insightful conversation about a variety of topics.


Climate change is with us now. It is affecting us in numerous ways. By faith, we affirm that we are stewards of the earth, responsible for its well-being. During January and February, the Mission Board is sponsoring a series of Adult Education sessions at 9:15 on Sunday mornings to explore ways in which climate change calls us to respond as people of faith. Please join us in Rockwood Hall starting on Sunday, January 13 for this important series. Many of the presenters are members or relatives of members of Congregational UCC.
