BAPTISM AND CONFIRMATION SERVICE ON MAY 31ST
The Pastorate is pleased to announce a baptismal and confirmation service to be held on Sunday, May 31, 2015, beginning at 9:15 AM. There will be no Sunday School classes that day so that all members of the congregation may attend and support the baptism of Morgan and Logan Scott. Breakfast will begin at 8:45 AM so come join the fellowship followed by the baptismal service and confirmation.
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS SCHEDULE
The Adult Sunday School class is studying Mark Scherer’s “The Journey of a People: The Era of Reorganization, 1844 to 1946.” Class sessions will resume on Sunday, June 7, 2015 and will focus on chapter 6 (“Launching the Reorganized Church”). Jane Landrum will be teaching the class.
BOOK TABLE UPDATE
Our table of “donated books” has morphed into a “clear your bookcases and bring more books to church” project. We are extending the collection of your unwanted books until the end of October. Please place any books you bring into the box(es) under the table in the Fellowship Hall.
