Sunday School resumes next week, September 8th, for the 2019-2020 year. It starts at 8:45am each Sunday, and we strongly encourage everyone to be prompt throughout the year so classes can start on time. Classes are offered for Pre-K through Adults. The Pre-K through 5th grades start in the fellowship hall for a brief time of singing and will then go to their classrooms. All other classes 6th grade and older should go directly to their classrooms. Parents of Pre-K-12th Grade Students: please check your mailbox for more Sunday School information! Also, to ensure safety, all children 5th grade and younger need to be picked up from their classroom by a parent. Thank you!

Nursery Parents: If your child is in the nursery during the Sunday School hour, please remember to come back to the counter prior to the morning worship service to check them in with the nursery greeters. Thank you!
