Christian Education Classes
There will be no Church School classes on Sunday, Dec. 24 or 31, as we take a break during the holiday season.
As we gather for Church School on Sun., Jan. 7, after our Christmas break, the Christian Education Committee invites you to a continental breakfast in the new Maker’s Space (Room 234), beginning at 9:30 am. Please bring a breakfast bread to share. Come and grab a bite to eat on your way to class, and wish your friends a Happy New Year!
