This week PK - K will meet for Sunday School as usual, rehearsing for The Great ADVENTure during opening music from 9:45 -10 am.
GR 1 - 8 will meet in Rm 100 at 9:45 am for special assignments and preparations for our part in leading the congregation in The Great ADVENTure on Dec 21.
GR 9 - 12 will meet with Pastor Stephanie for informal community-building conversation and hang-out, with a short 10-minute Nooma video and a focus on growing together in faith. You can see the trailer for this week's video here.
