Adult Formation

An Adult Education class is offered every Sunday at 9 AM in the Social Hall.

Opening into Presence, an exploration of meditative and contemplative practices to quiet the mind and open the heart is being offered as the next Adult Sunday School series starting on Sunday January 8 at 9 am and continuing over the next six weeks. Anne Curo will lead the sessions which are based on a curriculum developed by Judy Leshefka, a local Quaker practitioner. Whether or not you can attend the introductory class, feel free to drop in on any of the sessions to sample some of the wisdom traditions and techniques we will be exploring.
