All Things Considered is a drop-in group for adults that meets in the Chapel on Sunday mornings after worship for about an hour. We begin in September and end in mid-May. Each program features a speaker who shares their expertise and experience with those in attendance. Speakers have included leaders from local mission organizations, newscasters, judges, authors and many, many more. Please look below to see upcoming speakers.
We also welcome your suggested topics for discussion. Please contact the church office with your suggestions.
