"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God..."

- Ephesians 2:8

Children’s Sunday School – Today, we will not hold the regular children’s Sunday School classes in order to allow our Sunday school teachers to attend an instructional meeting.  Instead, we will offer a group event during the Sunday school hour for all school age children.  Please join us in the school gym. 

Prayer of Thanksgiving for Birthdays – Thank God for the following birthdays, and ask Him to provide peace and fullness of life for those who serve Him.  We thank Him for their faithful example.
