Our Adult Education programming is ecumenical and interfaith in scope, and sensitive to the cultural, social, economic, environmental, and political issues of our time. We offer classes on Sundays throughout our program year.

Our faculty includes outstanding professors with local seminaries, colleges, and universities; public officials; topical experts; and dedicated members of our own congregation. Our class settings provide an intimate opportunity so that you can interact with presenters and fellow members—or simply sit, listen, and learn.
