Announcements Policy

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

Sunday School is offered every Sunday from September until June.   They leave with a teacher after the Children’s Talk with the Minister and return for Communion.
