This Sunday, February 3, at 9:15 a.m.:

  • Children from PreK-3 age through fifth grade meet on the second floor of the Parish Hall for Christian education classes.
  • A new series for adults begins: Episcopal 101, a review of the church from Old Testament through the Prayer Book, begins in Bishops Hall. Open to all adults, and full of interesting insight, this class also serves as adult preparation for confirmation or reception at the bishop's visit in early May.
  • Daily Dose of Scripture, a study of the Sunday lectionary readings, is led in the Parish Hall small parlor, led, this week, by Ed Henderson.

Children's Church is offered during the 10:30 service. Children depart to the chapel for their own homily and program, with opportunity to stretch and wiggle, and will return to church in time for communion with their family.
