Due to the schedule of one worship service, Bi-annual Meeting and Thanksgiving Lunch, we will have no Sunday School on November 11th.
Thanksgiving is a unique American holiday established in the last century to not only thank God for our many blessings, but to specifically thank God for our many blessings as Americans. Though we may do that in our gatherings with family and friends, it is also an appropriate time to gather for worship. Our Thanksgiving Eve service, Wednesday, November 21, 7:30 p.m., will lift up our thanks to God and bless us once again with God’s gifts of Word and Sacrament.
We have lots of opportunities for all ages. Traditional Sunday School for ages 4-12th grade and 3 adult bible study small groups. Faith Stories, Coffee and Conversation and Men in Mission.
