Celebrating Milestones

We will be celebrating several milestones with our young people this fall.  Mark these dates on your calendar for 2019-2020!

Welcome to Worship Our two year olds will receive a children’s Bible and a blessing on Sunday, September 15 during both worship services.  We celebrate how these children are growing and the ways that they can begin to worship and learn with us in our congregation.

Leading in Worship Our students in grades 4-6 will participate in a workshop at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 15.  This is designed to prepare students to serve worship as acolytes and to help us understand some of the reasons behind many things we do in our worship services.  Following this worship, students will be scheduled to serve in worship.
