Third Sunday Forum

Third Sunday Forum

                           During the summer months, the theme for our Third Sunday Forums is “How My Faith Informs My Work”.  In June we heard from members of our church in the field of medicine. This month members will be sharing the impact their faith has had on their work with children, youth, and adults in education.
