SUNDAY SCHOOL
Rally Day is September 10th!

Adult Sunday School will start on September 10, the same day that Children's Sunday School starts. We will meet at 8:45 a.m. in the Upper Room.

For our first meeting we will catch up on summer news and also discuss what we would like to study during the year. A few possible ideas: ? The God We Can Know: Exploring the Meaning of the "I Am" Statements of Jesus by Rob Fuquay. This has a DVD and seven chapters. It is being used by the Dawn Patrol group and they have already bought the DVD.. ? A 6-week DVD and study by Adam Hamilton: Moses: In the Footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet ? A book of the Bible? We're open to any other ideas that people bring - so come and join us on September 10!

We will break the Fall up into several classes of 4-7 weeks each - people can come to one session, one class or more than one class. For more information contact Anne Carter at etw2419@aol.com.

Children will gather in the sanctuary at 8:45 am. We are going back to our old schedule of gathering all ages together and then breaking into their classes. The group gathering will be a time for songs and practicing for the Christmas Pageant. We are going to start early working on parts for the pageant this fall. Children who would like to have a speaking part should plan to come on Sunday mornings to learn their role.

Registrations forms will be in the office for early sign-ups, as well as available on Sunday mornings for the Sunday School classes. There will be 4 classrooms this year: pre-K and K, 1st -3rd graders, 4th and 5th graders, and the 6th-12th grades youth group.

1st Sundays



HYMN SING SUNDAY
Remember that the first Sunday of every month is “Hymn Sing Sunday.” That means that for the ten minutes before Worship begins, members of the congregation are invited to request a favorite hymn, perhaps one we don’t sing as often as you’d like! So, come early, select a hymn, call it out, and sing along!
