Kairos is a time each Sunday of enrichment for mind and spirit. A mix of timely topics, Bible Study, and theological exploration are presented by scholars, theologians and other professionals. Kairos meets at 8:45 a.m. and 10:05 a.m. in the Fireside Room. The same topic is presented at both times. If you typically worship at 10:45 a.m., feel free to come to the 10:05 a.m. Kairos session and leave at 10:45 a.m. for the start of worship.
