Pastor Bob is planning a new member class beginning Monday, September 13th at 7pm in the library and continue for 8 weeks. New members will be received into the church on Sunday, November 7th at our All Saints Sunday service. Please let the pastor know if you are interested.

​Adult Sunday School Class

We fully anticipate returning to in-person worship and Sunday School for both children and adults in September. Currently we do not have a leader or coordinator for the adult class. I f you have been a part of that class, I urge you to pray about offering your spiritual gift to lead that class. Worship and class times have not yet been finalized, as we are still uncertain if we will return to two services. Thanks for your patience as we make decisions going forward.
