Whenever possible announcements are included in the Sunday bulletin. To ensure inclusion, they should arrive at the church office, preferably by e-mail, by midday of the Wednesday before the Sunday on which they are to appear. When announcements miss the bulletin or require amplification, they may be made during “Community Announcements” at our Sunday services.
Sunday School is offered every Sunday from September 13, 2015 to children over the age of four. They leave with a teacher after the prayer for the children and return for Communion.
