New Sunday School Class - THE UPPER ROOM
(will meet in the upper room of the sanctuary)

The class, comprised of all ages, will focus each week on The Upper Room daily devotional curriculum to discuss the week's readings. The class is open to everyone, but does ask for a covenant commitment of all its members. This includes regular attendance, daily reading and prayer, member support and accountability, and an earnest desire to grow spiritually through the grace of God. The Upper Room devotionals are available in the foyer and church office.


May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you....
1 Thessalonians 3:12
