A TED TALK is a video that presents a great idea in 18 minutes or less. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues to culture, art, and religion. We’re planning to offer one TED TALK each month on a Sunday between services and then talk about the TALK. Come join us and share your impressions, insight, and opinions.

At a moment when the world seems to be spinning out of control, religion might feel irrelevant – or like part of the problem. But Rabbi Sharon Brous believes we can reinvent religion to meet the needs of modern life. In this impassioned talk, Brous shares four principles of a revitalized religious practice and offers faith of all kinds as a hopeful counter-narrative to the numbing realities of violence, extremism and pessimism.

Would you like to have some time with one of our pastors in a small group setting? Here’s your opportunity. Once a month we’ll be offering "Coffee with the Pastor" in Griswold Parlor between Sunday services. There is no set agenda - simply an opportunity to talk with one another. Grab your cup of coffee in Mulford Hall and join either Pastor Ed or Pastor Tom for an informal chat.

What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it's fame and money, you're not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you're mistaken. As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a long, fulfilling life. One of them may even surprise you.

The mission of adult education programs is to provide a supportive community that helps adults grow in faith.

Adult Education

Our Sunday morning speaker series provides a variety of topics for adult learning.  Recent presentations have included presentations on "Being Mortal" Screening & Discussion, Refugee Assistance, and Poverty in New Jersey.

Please check the Adult Education page for dates and topics.

Lunch and a Movie

Wednesdays at noon from Sept - May, Halldorson Hall. 

For those with free time during the day, this is a perfect opportunity for fellowship and discussion led by our Pastor, Ed Halldorson.  Each week, the group gathers to watch a segment from a film series and share their thoughts with one another.  

Bring your lunch - you'll quickly feel at home with this small and friendly group. Friends welcome. 

Bible Study

Thursdays, 9:30 – 11:00 am, Sept - May, Theos Room

This group meets during the school year. There is no need to be a Biblical scholar! Led by Rev. Halldorson.

Faith, Fellowship & Chocolate Book Club

This group is currently reading The Book of Joy written by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu with Douglas Abrams.  In April 2015, Archbishop Desmond Tutu travelled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create this book as a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: how do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?

Meets regularly throughout the school year.  Please contact the church office for more information on meeting times and location.
