Growing in Faith, Hope, and Love
We have an awesome year planned! Our focus during the 2018-2019 Church School Year is LITURGY & SACRAMENTS. We will be diving into our Worship to learn about God’s love for us!
At the end of the year the children will have a special presentation to showcase all they have learned throughout the year.
I look forward to another exciting year!
Yours in Christ’s service,
Julia Sales, Church School Directorn
