Sunday Forum


Our popular Forum series is on summer hiatus beginning May 20, to resume Sept. 9.

regular church year

10:10 a.m.–10:55 a.m.

Beginning again this Fall, join us for Sunday Forum, a lecture series that showcases provocative – and sometimes controversial – speakers, discussing topical issues of the day: the arts, politics, the environment, health issues, education and more. Speakers give a thirty minute presentation followed by questions and brief comments from the audience.

Join us Sundays in Max Otto Hall on our second floor. Coffee is served, and childcare is available. Forums are scheduled from September through May, with a short break during the holidays.

Child Care

Childcare for infants and toddlers is available in our nursery on the lower level. For parents who want to listen to Sunday Service but don’t want to be separated from their little ones, the Adlai Stevenson Parlor broadcasts the service as it happens. One of our ushers will be happy to direct you.

Coffee Hour

After our services, join us for Coffee Hour in the Leenhouts Common Room — it’s a great opportunity to greet old friends, meet new ones and catch up on all that’s going on here at First Church. Along with coffee, tea and juice, you’ll find signup sheets for events and programs, information about our committees and groups and lots of lively conversation. And our youth group sells bagels too!
