This Sunday

Children’s Church Orientation

Sunday, August 16 ● 9:00 a.m. ● Children’s Chapel, 2nd Floor,
Pritchett Center

If you have a rising Kindergartner or are new to Children’s Church, come celebrate the Eucharist with us this Sunday. Children’s Church is a service where we take time to teach why we do what we do every Sunday. It is a great way to help children feel comfortable and knowledgeable in their church home. And who knows, you may learn a thing or two also!
