Rally Sunday NEXT Sunday

    Join us on Sunday, September 7 as we kick off the fall with two services and Sunday School classes for people of all ages.  The two 8:30 am and 11:00 am services will be split by a 9:45 Sunday School hour for both adults and kids. Children from age 3 up, and adults are all encouraged to come learn more about God’s word.  Nursery care will be available during the Sunday School hour for families with children under 3.  This will be a great help for those ofyou who want to attend Sunday School and need an extra set of eyes for toddlers.

    During the Sunday School hour, a new 9-week adult study of the book of Esther will be taught by Pastor T in the sanctuary.  In this Old Testament book, you’ll discover the wisdom of Mordecai, the wickedness of Haman, the courage of Esther, and the provision of God.  Components of the class include in-depth Bible study and practical application.  All adults are welcome to join, and Coffee in the sanctuary is allowed for this Adult Class.
