. . .in Children’s Ministry & Milestones

Beth Bourgeois, Children’s Ministry Coordinator

Our Sunday School attendance is growing! So much that our current space is a very tight fit with standing room only…Praise be to God for such a wonderful predicament!! The Sunday School committee has decided to add an additional class to better fit our needs. The 4th-6th graders will now have their own group in the Fireside room, while 3 year old-1st grade & 2nd-3rd grade classes will continue in the Sunday School room. Both classes will meet after the Children’s Sermon during the 10:30 service. A very big thank you to Linnea, Melissa, Ricky, James & Lindsay for so joyfully leading our children through their Sunday School journey!
