Common Grounds adult seminar is a vital part of Christian Education at St. Michael’s in the Hills. Each Sunday after the worship service (Sept. through May), all adults are invited to the Fellowship Hall following the 10 am service for presentations of spiritual, cultural and social topics. Presenters are often congregation members, spotlighting the wealth of talent and experience in our parish. Church organizations and committees are welcome to use Common Grounds as a forum for increasing awareness for special needs and projects. Sessions last approximately 45 minutes.
