Mission Statement

Life Enrichment Adult Forums (LEAFs) is an ecumenical collaboration of North Metro congregations providing inclusive opportunities for educational and spiritual development for all adults.

What is LEAFs?

Life Enrichment Adult Forums (LEAFs) is an ecumenical endeavor started by a group of lay and clergy leaders from the North Metropolitan area congregations. The forums provide life enrichment experiences for adults in the community. The first one was held in the spring of 1995. The average attendance is 100 for each day that sessions are held.

Enrollment and participation is open to anyone who has interest. The purpose of these forums is to provide opportunities to enjoy lifelong learning, creative expression and interfaith relationships. Each series of forums consists of four alternate Monday mornings (spring and fall) determined by the planning committee.

Participants can choose one out of three offerings presented in the 9:30 to 10:30 time slot. The second hour from 11:00 to 12:00 is usually a plenary session with everyone together.

Coffee break at 10:30 and lunch at 12:00 noon provide time for fellowship and discussion of the programs.

A nominal fee is charged and scholarships are available.
