Sunday School News: March

Welcome back from another wonderful Christmas season! Sunday School is in full swing at 9:45 am in the basement of the sanctuary. 

We have plans for another great Vacation Bible School that will run from Monday, June 6 through Friday, June 10. All are welcome to participate in “Surf Shack” activities. Grab your surfboard and get ready for some wonderful sum-mer happenings. Sing-alongs with Pastor Sarah, great food from our hospitality ladies as well as great summer arts and crafts. Volunteers are needed as always, so look for announcements for planning meetings in the very near future.

Christmas Caroling

Sunday, December 13, 12:30 pm

Calling all carolers! We will be sharing the joy and music of the Advent and Christmas seasons with some of our homebound members and other community members who are shut in. We will be carpooling, so all are welcome. Singing in tune is not required…only a joyous heart! We will gather for snacks following the caroling in Hope Hall.
