Summer Sunday School

As you know, we are so close to starting on our youth area renovations!   In order to get everything finished by the start of the school year, we are moving youth Sunday school to another area of the church.  You can join us in the Handbell room (across the hall from the choir suite) to start the morning.  We will then divide up middle school and high school and one group will move to room 301 just down the hall from there.  We’re going to have a great summer and look forward to seeing you!

Renovation Survey

We are moving forward on some updates to the Youth Area! For the past 4 football seasons, we have been very conservative with our Parking Fundraising. The proceeds have gone to student scholarships, missions, and our great intern, Alex. The remaining funds have been set aside for this project. It is very exciting!

A couple of years ago, we offered a survey at the Kick-Off and are including several suggestions from that in the renovation plan.

This is an opportunity to voice your ideas about the project! We will take everything into consideration as we work through design details and finalize logistics. Thank you for your input!
