Dear Forum Community,

Our last service of the Fall quarter is our Christmas Celebration on December 17.  Come and share the joy and blessing of the Advent with your friends.  This year we willl have a sing along with a recording of Handel's Messiah with a pot luck lunch to follow the service.

Not all our services for the winter quarter are yet settled, but our guest speakers are all in place and you can see the current schedule on our website and check back later as more services are added.  The first service will be on Jan 14 when our speaker will be Fritz Guy.  His topic in the morning will be Envisioning an Adventist Future and in the afternoon: Reading the Bible as It Actually Is.

We remind you that we hold services only twice a month, usually the first and third Saturday. Our first service each month will have a guest speaker and include an afternoon session.  We often share our guest speakers with other area churches so the locations will vary.  Be sure to check our schedule or our weekly email for the location.

PS for Worship Leaders: Check the team list.


Welcome to the Home of the Forum
www.mnyaforum.org

The Metro New York Adventist Forum is a community worshiping together twice a month on Saturdays in St Mary's Church Manhattan. While many member are Seventh-day Adventists (SDA), anyone is welcome to worship with us.  St Mary's is our primary home, but sometimes we share a speaker with other churches often meeting in their sancuaries (as noted in our schedule listing).

Our services include music, liturgy, prayer and either a speaker or a discussion. The Forum is a chapter of the Association of Adventist Forums, but unlike most chapters, our meetings are worship services and meet at the traditional worship time of SDA churches. We have not sought recognition as an official church by the local SDA conference, but do serve as a worship home for many area students and others who find our format filling a gap not satisfied by other area churches.

Our members hold views ranging from conservative to liberal and our discussions encourage free explorations of varying viewpoints and avoid condemning any honestly held belief.

If you live near NYC consider joining our community or add your name to our mailing list. If you visit the NYC area, consider worshiping with us.

Consider helping us with our mission to the students of the NYC area by becoming a contributing member.
