What is Learners' Exchange?

Canon Dr. J.I. Packer chairs the Learners' Exchange. The topics are deeply Christian and address topical issues of our time. Every Sunday morning at 9:00 am during the spring and fall, St. John's hosts engaging and stimulating speakers that give talks on a variety of subjects. Some of them have a particular expertise, some are people with worthwhile experiences to share. With a chance to have a lively discussion afterward, Learners' Exchange is great for adults wanting to explore and grow in their faith. We meet in the southeast corner room that is accessed through the sanctuary lobby area, and refreshments are served from 8:30am to 9:00am.
