Sunday School in February 

There will be school every Sunday, except Feb. 19, for the President’s Day Holiday. This might be a good opportunity for students to enjoy an entire worship service with their families.

Youth Groups will discuss :”Where is God when the world hurts?”

Senior Highs meet Friday, Feb. 3, 6-8 pm and Junior Highs get together on Feb. 10 at the same hour.  David and Molly are compiling a variety of work projects and fun activities to propose for the spring.
