See the Weekly Update on the Home Page for this week’s Adult Forum Topic.  Adult Forum usually meets every Sunday, beginning the Sunday after Labor Day and ending the Sunday before Pentecost.

We frequently have Bible studies on various topics.  Some are short term, focused studies and some are ongoing.  Please call the church office at 203-775-9070 or see the calendar for the current schedule.

A group for retired adults, the Gathering meets at the church on the second Thursday of every month at 1:00 p.m. These gatherings include devotions, sharing experiences, activities, games, movies, etc. Refreshments are served. Occasionally the meeting will start at noon to accommodate a luncheon.

Friday Night Live is an event open to all adults in the church. The group meets the third Friday of each month at 7:00pm. Its purpose is to provide members with the opportunity to socialize and grow in fellowship with one another. The group gathers at a different host home each month to enjoy good food and conversation.

Each couple attending is asked to bring an entrée
(to feed 6) and an appetizer, or a side dish, or a dessert. A single person only needs to bring one of the above. The host family provides the paper products and drinks.

Call the church office for the current Friday Night Live schedule. The sign-up sheet is posted in the church Narthex. We hope you will join us!
