Adult Forum through Lent
Meets on Sunday mornings at 10am in Parish Hall 2
During the season of Lent, St. Thomas’ Adult Forum will offer an opportunity for parishioners to consider how their talents, passions, and values can be put to service in God’s Kingdom through their everyday lives. This course will be led by Dr. George Phillips, Senior Warden at St. Thomas. Over his career in academic medicine, George has worked with numerous emerging and established leaders to assist them in discerning paths toward goals in their professional and personal lives. George also uses that experience with our high school youth in The Giving Project, helping them design a personal mission statement that informs their area of service in God’s Kingdom. As our Lenten traditions encourage us to explore areas for personal growth, please consider joining Adult Forum for this opportunity for a guided approach to introspection that may open new paths for living out your faith.
