ADULT INSTRUCTION CLASS
We are looking to start up another Adult Instruction Class after Labor Day. This once-a-week class (generally on a Monday evening or at a mutually agreeable time) is a course on basic Bible teachings for adults and/or high school age folks. It is intended for those who may be interested in communicant membership in our congregation or for any who simply desire a review of the ABCs of basic Bible teachings. If you or anyone you know is interested, please call the pastor at 486-2754.
