Those dates are 9/1, 9/8, 9/15, 9/22, and 9/29. If you or your group would like to help or take care of one of these nights, please contact Ron Hartman or Robin Hinson.
To accomplish this mission, we will need many volunteers! Pray about it and see if this is something God is calling you to do.

**Adult Sunday School – New Study

Everyone interested is invited to participate at 10:00 am on Sunday mornings in the room behind the sanctuary.
