In celebration of Women's History Month, Adult Education will focus on the role women have played throughout the Bible and Church history as well as a leadership lab focused on gender and power. We will explore what it means to hold a theology in the midst of patriarchy and misogyny and what we can do to invest in and empower women (and the world) around us.
