Intergenerational Sunday School
We will begin a new adventure on Sunday mornings starting September 11 at 11 am. This will follow the worship service. This will be offered to children, youth, and adults. There will be a Bible scripture with a story presented in an interesting way along with an activity, time to discuss, and a light snack. Patty will continue to offer her class to those adults, who might want a quieter version of the church school. Willy and the youth will be included in this new offering. Come and check it out! It should be a chance to get to know all ages of our congregation. If you have questions, please see Lisa Crismore!
