Summer Sunday School in Session
June 2 through August 11 @ 10:10 to 11:00

After the Children’s Sermon, kids in pre-school, elementary and middle school will have their Bible story and themed play time, so families are free to enjoy their own summer activities after Worship.

For parents and grandparents staying for adult Sunday school or New Member’s Class, Miss Faith is happy to watch the kids until noon either in the classroom or on the playground.

Last week they learned The Parable of the Prodigal Son: the story of the son who demands his inheritance, squanders it recklessly, then returns home destitute. Instead of judgment, his father showers him with love, hosting a joyous celebration to welcome him back. This story reveals the boundless mercy of God. Luke 15:11-32.

Many thanks to all who purchased diapers, saving mothers at the Farmworker’s Ministry much, much money for these essential items.
