10:30 am Join us in the Red Room for Bible Study, Crafts, Music, Videos, and Games.

Let’s see how much fun we can have learning together about God!

Do you have 20 to 40 minutes to devote to our children a Sunday morning a month during Sunday School time?  Do you need a place to serve that will provide rewards beyond your expectations?  Do you have just four Sundays between September and May to spend with our children?  See Kathie Hendricks or Dee Dee Kwiatkowski! Although most members of our congregation no longer have children in Sunday School,the need is still great.  Our children are the future of the church. 

Grace and Peace Through Jesus Christ, Our Savior and Lord,
