New Kids Classes
We are excited to offer classes for grades 1-4 again. Kids may be dismissed at the beginning of the sermon to go to their classes. (Your kids are welcome to stay with you if you’d prefer.) Every three Sundays we plan to have a Family Worship Sunday, where grades 1-4 will stay in the sanctuary with their parents. We have also begun providing Sermon Activity sheets for older kids. See Bree Bartell or Linda Woodhouse for more information.
