Please take a moment to fill out a name tag in the Narthax
Let’s help Rev. Erin get to know us!! Name tag holders and their inserts are available for you now, in the basket in the Narthax. You may leave the tags here on the bulletin board or bring them back for continued use over the next few months.
There will be no pre-early teen Sunday School class this Sunday the 25th. It will resume on the following Sunday, October 2nd at it’s new time following the 9am worship service. The 11-14 year-old students will take their snacks upstairs to the Godly play classroom for a 30-40 minute class.
Thank you, Peggy Wymore
Sunday School classes started Sunday, September 11th.
Our “Godly Play” class includes 5-10 yrs. Our preteen/early Teen Bible Study will include 11-15 year olds. If your family is new to the church or has not be in church for the past year, please call the church office at 632-4626 Ext. 3, to help us place your child in the right class.

The Daughters of the King will be collecting personal hygiene items, Sunday, September 25. Items include toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, etc. We have identified a number of organizations that distribute these to people in need and we will be donating to them on a rotating basis. The items collected next Sunday will be added to those we collected earlier for the Foster Closet which is now closed. Please place your donations in the laundry basket in the narthex.
Attention all Acolytes:
For the next several Sundays, we will be taking measurements for new acolyte robes, immediately after the service. Measurements will be done in the acolyte robing room.
If you are currently an acolyte or interested in becoming an acolyte—please come and get measured for a new robe!
