Sunday school kicks off on September 13. Preschool to 4th grade are invited after the Children’s Sermon to attend Children’s Worship. Children will meet their parents in Fellowship Hall after worship.
Grades 5 and up will attend worship at 9:30 a.m. with their families.
Sunday Morning Wrap-Up
Beginning September 13 after worship and during coffee hour, grades five and up are invited for a short time (15-20 minutes) to room 203 to discuss various aspects of the worship service. This will be a time of reflection on the sermon and prayer, and a look at the scriptures and music used in the worship service. It will be led by a core group of the Youth Ministries Committee. Youth are welcome to bring their snacks during the short discussion.
NEW THIS SCHOOL YEAR!
