Special Church Council Meeting

October 21st @ Noon in Heritage Hall

Church Council invites you to a special Council meeting to discuss ideas to create Sunday morning opportunities for spiritual growth for our children and our adults.  We want everyone to be able to attend worship, as well as attend to their spiritual growth through group studies, etc.  How can we make that happen – how can we creat an “an hour of opportunity” in our Sunday schedule?  We want to hear your ideas as well as share ours.

We need your voice!
