We are a learning community. Throughout the year we offer a variety of opportunities for adults to gather for special presentations, conversations, and mini-seminars. All of these opportunities are designed to cultivate a richer understanding of our faith and encourage a deeper engagement with our wider world.
A Sample of our Adult Formation Opportunities
Here is a sampling the opportunities that will be offered during this coming program year:
Ongoing Conversations throughout the year on a variety of topics: throughout the year we will be reading books and discussing topics related to those book in gatherings, lectures and presentations. This fall we'll be reading MIT professor, Alan Lightman's recently published "Searching for Stars on an Island in Maine" and we will welcome Professor Lightman to GUC for an engaging presentation about his work.
Ministry for Seniors: “Prime Time.” We will gather for a luncheon every other month (beginning in September) and offer a variety of opportunities for small group gatherings throughout the year.
Women’s Breakfast: 3rd Saturday of every month, 8:30 - 10:00 a.m. A time for conversation, reflection and prayer. Led by Jennifer wood and Mary Snediker.
The Relationship between Faith and Science. This is an ongoing topic in our Adult Formation program. In the course of the year we will have at least two presentations by guest speakers.
