ADULT FORUM: After a restful break for the holidays Adult Forum has resumed with a line-up of excellent programs. For three Sundays (January 31, Feb. 7 and 14) representatives from other Oxford churches will join us to share information about what their churches are doing and thinking regarding ways to cooperate to improve life for all people in our area. On the final two Sundays in February (21 and 28) we begin a Lenten Series with stories of Living and Loss – reflections on personal stories of loss such as loss of job, loss of loved ones, loss of good health.
In addition to our strong contingent of regular (more or less) participants, we hope that the rest of you will join us for these consistently interesting – and often humorous – opportunities to explore how we live our Christian lives.
Adult Forum meets at 9: 15 on Sunday morning; coffee and snacks are available at 9:00. For more information, contact any member of the Adult education Committee: Karen Burnard, Cleve Callison, Carrie Galsworthy, Anne Lodge, Mary Melvin, Ellen Phelps, Peter Williams. — Mary Melvin
