Reminder: Sunday Morning Schedule to Change This Fall
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
When we gather on Sundays, starting September 10th, we will have a different format for our time together.
We are adapting to changes in our numbers and in how people participate. We are also creating opportunities for new ministries on Sunday mornings.
We will continue to begin our worship service at 9:30 am, with the Sunday School students and teachers in worship for approximately the first 30 minutes. Then the teachers and students will go to their classes. Worship will end around 10:30 am and coffee hour will begin as it does now. Sunday School classes will last until 10:45 am. We will be discontinuing the 11:00 am service. We will use the time after Sunday School ends for new types of programming, such as study groups, discussion times and innovative worship services. This will be an experiment for one program year (from September 2017 to June 2018), and will be evaluated in the summer of 2018. We welcome your feedback during the coming year.
People and Programs!
Would you like to get to know more people in the church? Have you thought about participating in one of our programs, but are not sure what to expect? On September 10th, you are invited to meet the people who are participating in the program you want to know more about. Following the church service, please enjoy some baked goods, coffee and juice while talking with church members who participate in groups like the senior choir, the festival ringers, the children’s choir, the Sunday school program, the youth groups, bible study groups,and the men’s breakfast. In addition, the celebration ringers and singers will be having an open rehearsal for any youth and parents who might be interested in participating in the group.
Take Note: Church Office Summer hours:
July and August – open on Tuesday’s only from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.
