Our Fall Schedule resumes the Sunday after Labor Day, September 12, with worship at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. and Sunday School at 9:10. Our last Thursday evening service was September 2. Our oldest Sunday School student will be in 6th grade, so we will not have a Wednesday evening Catechism class this school year.

Our Ushers’ Schedule through December has been placed in the mailboxes of those who are on the list. Thanks to all our volunteers!
