Sunday School We are blessed with children and youth. And while a children's sermon is a good thing, we need some help deepening the spiritual lives of our children. Please pray for at least 3 teachers and 4 teachers aides for this coming year. And please listen to see if God might be asking you to bravely step out in faith to work with the kids God has brought to us.

RAFFLE!! Our treasurer noted last Sunday that if just 15 parishioners would sell $20.00 per day for the next 26 days we would add an additional $7,800 to the funds already collected! Let’s make a big push to finish big!
