EDUCATION COMMITTEE & CHURCH COUNCIL NOTES
Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year. The Council will suggest to the voters at their July 23rd meeting that the Children’s Christmas Services replace the Sunday morning services that day (No services that night). This would be suggested ONLY for those years when Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday, NOT as a precedent for other years. Christmas Day services, as before, would be held at 9 a.m. on Dec, 25. Also for consideration by the voters, since New Years’ Eve falls on a Sunday, that regular Sunday services be held Dec. 31, but not in the evening. Fix-up/Clean-up night at school will be held Wed. Aug. 16, 6 p.m. Grandparents Day will be observed at our school this year on Tues. Oct. 24. Teachers will begin home visits in early August. School registration is Sun. Aug. 20. School starts Thurs. Aug. 24 (School starts: 8:00 a.m. Opening service at Church: 8:30 a.m.)

NEW USHER SCHEDULES are still available in the narthex.

ADULT CLASS – If you or someone you know is interested in instruction toward church membership, please call pastor at 486-2754.
