 Children's Sunday School Help

We are looking for some adults to pair with the children’s Sunday School class, ideally once a quarter.  Due to our Safe Ministry policy, we need a second adult in the classroom.  During this time, you may be asked to help children find a verse, share a faith experience, read words during skits and help with crafts. Being a Sunday School partner is a great way to help build the faith of the children and to show that you think their religious training is important. Please contact Lorna to indicate your availability.

Calling All Knitters and Crochet Folks! 

Come join us on the second Wednesday of every month from 9:30 am to 11:30 am in the conference room next to fellowship hall. We will be making prayer shawls, baby hats, and baby blankets. The prayer is for the receiver of the shawl or blanket to know the love of God, feel embraced by Him, and be encouraged in their journey. Come to learn, teach others, read scripture, and pray for others! If you have any questions, contact Barbara Norris 681-5383, or Judy Van Wagoner 697-5963,
