Sunday School will start on September 8th with a new schedule Children can attend 9:00 service with family and leave after the children’s word which will be before the sermon.  Kids will be brought down from the classroom at 10:15 to Founders Hall to rejoin their families.  We hope this makes it easier for families that attend 10:30 service to come a little earlier and send their children up to the classroom at 9:45 to join Sunday School.
