Church Sunday School and Youth Group Postponed

Until further notice, there is no Church Sunday School for Children or Youth Group. The Adult Forum will meet in Barnabas Hall from 9:00-9:45 a.m. each Sunday. Join us this Fall as we read through the stories of the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament). We will begin in the book of Genesis with the stories of Abraham and each week look at a different story or prophet. In addition to learning the stories we will provide a historical context and discuss how this is relevant in our daily lives. All are welcome to attend!
