Adult Education

Learning is never over, and for that reason we at United Lutheran present a weekly Sunday Morning Adult Forum from 9:15-10:15 am each Sunday, October-April, in the Fellowship Hall.  These presentations are free and open to the public, and all you need to do is bring an openness to learn and an inquiring mind.  You are welcome to ask questions...or just sit quietly and listen. And, wherever you are in these conversations ... you are always welcome.
