Each Sunday at 10:00 am in the Tree of Life Room
February 7 – Intergenerational Lent Event
No Forum today as all ages come together to prepare for the season of Lent with special projects and learnings.
February 14 –The Jordan River Today
There is much fear about people and places in the Middle East. There is worry around climate change and environmental issues. Join Abby Cress, who spent a year in Palestine and Israel, to explore one of the biggest environmental issues in the Middle East through a Christian lens. This Bible Study was created by an environmental and pro-peace organization in Israel, Palestine, and the Jordan: Eco Peace Middle East.
February 22 – Biblical Peacemaking
Promoting neither passivity nor violence, Jesus offers a third way to address conflict and injustice. Examine this vision, practical insights, and how to apply Jesus’ Way of Shalom to the various conflicts in our lives and in the world. This forum will be facilitated by members of the Lutheran Peace Fellowship (www.lutheranpeace.org)
February 28 – Diversity and the Church
Continuing our discussion around racial identity and privilege, PRLC’s DiversiTeam will host another dialogue to consider how our love for Jesus might propel us as a congregation and the church universal toward necessary change. We want to encourage discussion among the people of PRLC, while empowering congregants to continue this discussion outside of church walls. Topics include white racial identity, privilege, and alliance. Liturgy, resources and snacks will be provided!
In addition to Adult Forum, PRLC offers these faith formation opportunities throughout the week:
Meets each Sunday, 10:00 a.m. in the Tower Room
Liturgy and Justice: Making the Connections
Join Pastor Hansen for a discussion on the relationship between Sunday worship and God’s vision of justice. Explore the ways in which the vision of God’s Kingdom is enacted around font, word and table and how this Kingdom flows out into the world. All are welcome!
Lectionary and Lunch
Noon in the Library
Join the pastors for an exploration of the Sunday scripture readings. A great way to prepare for Sunday worship. All are welcome and are invited to bring a sack lunch.
10:00 a.m. in Tree of Life
Spirited Women have been meeting every Wednesday morning for 16 years for fellowship, faith exploration, reflection, and prayer. This is an open group and women are welcome to join at any time.

6:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room
Join Pastor Van Kley during Bread for the Journey time to discuss Luther’s Small Catechism in an informal setting. Whether you have it memorized from childhood, have never look at it, or simply want to know more about the core aspect of the Lutheran tradition, please join the conversation. All are welcome!
Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. in the Chapel
Using the “aural bible study” method, join Pastor Hansen in the Chapel as we pray the scriptures. The scripture will be the Gospel reading for the upcoming Sunday. We will also explore, over these weeks, other venues for prayer such as Imaginative Prayer, the daily prayer office and praying with icons. All are welcome!
Evening Spirited Women
Third Thursdays at 6:00 pm in the Tree of Life Room
Like the Wednesday morning group, Evening Spirited Women seeks to provide a place for faith sharing, fun, and mutual support shaped by book discussion and prayer. This group is currently reading the book Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church, by Rachel Held Evans. The group meets every third Thursday of the month. Soup suppers will be provided at the meetings. Childcare is available upon request.
