2nd Hours

2nd hour logoFollowing the Worship Service

2nd Hour conversations cover a variety of topics and take place immediately following our Sunday morning worship and a quick cup of coffee, 11:30-12:30. Social-justice issues, aging conversations, finances, book discussions, and church governance matters might be covered. It is the time we gather to discuss action that is needed. Any congregant can propose a topic and lead a discussion after scheduling time with the church office.
