What’s Happening in Sunday School

Sunday School will be transitioning to a remote format.  Each week Tracy will be doing some sort of activity.  It will either be a video post on our Facebook page, or an activity that she emails to all our Sunday School families or something she sends in the mail.  Even though we can’t meet in person right now, our Faith Formation doesn’t end!  If you are interested in being part of our Sunday School family, please let Tracy know!

Fellowship Hour


Coffee Hour or Fellowship Hour immediately follows most of our worship services. You are invited to linger after worship on Zoom for our virtual coffee or Fellowship Hour.  It provides a setting for our current members and friends to catch up with one another and it offers an opportunity for visitors to engage in conversation and see what kind of community we really are. but of connection and care.
