If you enjoy a cup of coffee and some lively discussion on interesting topics, please come to The Forum after the coffee hour on Sunday mornings.
Topics cover an impressive range of subjects. Some are comforting, some a controversial, all are interesting. The topics range from issues of great importance (climate change, income inequality, affordable housing, etc.) to lighter topics (church art, travel to other countries, jazz, etc.).
