The busy time of year is here!

Church School is walking together through Lent. Our communal discipline is to read the Bible. The students are encouraged to read chapters of their choosing and record what they have read. Each Sunday we will briefly check in and hear about the stories each student encountered. The next two Sundays, the students will be learning about the Sermon on the Mount.

Devotion by Supper Club continues on Tue 3/13 at 6:00 pm, and for our Mon 4/23 meeting, the youth will help those in need at a local soup kitchen. More information to follow! ... Read more in Eric's Column
