Did you know there is a new Sunday School Class which started back in September 2019? This class was formed by and is led by our church members who are in their 20’s and 30’s; we have guest speakers, too. 

The class is welcoming to all and would love to have you join them. It is a fun class with enlightening discussions each Sunday. Our discussions prepare us and help us spread God’s love each week.

The class meets at 10:00 a.m. in room 135, on the ground floor of the church near the preschool area.

If you have any questions about the class, please contact Sydney Sutcliffe (srsutcliffe01@gmail.com).
