Upcoming Events – October, 2016
Lunches needed for Confirmation Class
This year, our confirmation class will take place on select Sundays after worship. There will be 6 or 7 of us each time.
- Pastor Brenna is looking for people willing to prepare a lunch for the group and eat with us if possible (or prepare and leave something ahead of time).
- Please sign up on the sheet on the bulletin board or email Brenna if you’re available.
- Dates needed are: October 16, November 13, November 27, and December 11.
- This would be a huge help, and a great way to get to know our confirmands.
