A dynamic part of Follen’s Community and Hospitality Action Team, our Adult Programs group sponsors, supports, and coordinates offerings for adults at Follen. Our mission is to help the Follen community live into its potential as a congregation that supports spiritual development, learning, fellowship and “embracing the world” – its beauty and its challenges – through support, coordination and collaboration on adult programs.
