The Forum

Every Sunday from February 12 - March 26, a forum for fellowship and learning will be offered in the Parish Hall between the 9:00 and 11:15 am worship services. The Forum will include speakers, videos, fellowship games such as Family Feud just for fun, and more. Please join us!  For more information, contact Alex Martin or Patricia Rose.

We begin The Forum series this spring with St. Timothy's version of Family Feud, followed by a discussion on moving ministry out of the comfort zone. At the beginning of March we will explore what our Christian tradition says about other religions as part of Dialogues Along the Way journey toward a better understanding of what it means to love your neighbor.
