No Summer School in August

   Sunday, August 2 to Sunday, September 6

Please be aware that we will not be offering Sunday School classes over the summer at either 9:30 or 11:00 a.m. during the month of August or on the first Sunday of September (which is Labor Day weekend). During that time, the Sunday morning nursery will accept children who are going into kindergarten (and younger); all elementary-aged children are encouraged to attend worship with their parents.

I often get questions about why we take this break. After all, it throws families out of routines, and many kids have a hard time being in worship for the full hour.Our primary reason for taking the break is to give our volunteer teachers a chance to recharge for the regular school year, and it gives Pam and Matt a chance to provide Sunday morning training sessions to the teachers as well. Thanks for understanding!
