Sundays at 11:30 after the service
Adult Forums look a bit different than past years, but we’ve still got some great things planned and we would love for you to join us for our virtual adult forums at 11:30 most Sundays after the service on Zoom. Our theme this winter will focus on different kinds of love, based on the 1 John 4:7 text—“let us love one another,” and we will be drawing in a variety of different kinds of topics such as community safety, justice and politics, grief, and resiliency. Here’s what we have planned for this month:
It’s a New Year and that means a whole new batch of virtual adult forums at our usual time of 11:30am on Sundays. As we’re heading into a time of transition in our church, we are planning to have different speakers talk about what it means to thrive in the midst of transition, again trying to bring you a range of people from different organizations and topics. Here’s what we have planned for January:
January 3: Pastor Kathy. As we get close to her retirement, we wanted to give Pastor Kathy a chance to share some words at our adult forum. Come hear Pastor Kathy share and reflect about her time over the years at Peace Church.
January 10: Come after the worship service for a drive-by in our upper parking lot to say good-by to Pastor Kathy and her family.
January 17: Lisa Fitzpatrick and Climate Crisis prep for our congregational meeting. Lisa Fitzpatrick has been doing some amazing climate justice work recently, and we want to invite you to hear more about her work around declaring a climate emergency in Duluth. This is part of a forum that will give some context on the lead up to a Peace congregational vote on whether to support the petition for the city of Duluth to declare a climate emergency. Come listen to what Lisa has been up to and bring your questions as a way to help prepare us for the congregational vote.
January 24: Pastor Greg. This month we at Peace welcome our new interim, Pastor Greg. Come join us for this opportunity to get to know Pastor Greg better as we embark on this new chapter together.
January 31: Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ). Come join us to hear more about the work of SURJ Northland, a local group organizing white folks to do better multiracial work. You’ll hear about some of the core values of the organization, as well as some of the work they’ve been doing in the community.
