Forums

A Forum is offered on most Sundays from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. from late August through late June. Forums are offered to enhance and deepen our spiritual lives. The Adult Religious Education Committee schedules Forums that offer a wide variety of topics as related to Quaker faith and practice, social issues, personal sharings, outside speakers, Chapel Hill Friends Meeting Committees, etc. (There is no Forum on the third Sunday of each month, which is the 9:00 a.m. Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business.)
