A REMINDER ABOUT SUNDAY SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
It is assumed that parents who do not send their children to our Christian Elementary School will surely want to provide their children with this weekly opportunity to learn the ABC’s of Bible History and Doctrine. All children are invited to attend our Sunday School. Sunday School resumes TODAY – 9:10 – 9:50 a.m. at St. Paul’s School.
