Fall Sunday School

There are classes for all ages (including 3 adult classes) available.  Please ask an usher if you’re not sure where to go!  The Fall Sunday School Quarter begins on September 2nd. We will have a Kick-off Sunday on September 9th beginning at 9:10 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  This will include a light breakfast and a time to fellowship and meet your teacher if you haven’t done so yet!  We’ll help you get to the right class also.

Joy in the Morning (postponed to later date!)

Don’t miss a very special musical Sunday morning, September 16  (TBD)!  The adult choir along with the youth and children will be singing throughout the service as we celebrate the meaning of our mission statement. Some songs will be sung in the native language they were written.  Deb Proctor will be joining Scott on the piano and there will be congregational singing and solos along with inspirational reflections.  Percussionist David Holsinger is returning to accompany the service!  See Worship Services for September 16th.
