Coming Up in Worship:
SUNDAY MORNING EXPERIENCE
September 10, 2017 – May 20, 2018
The Sunday Morning Experience for the upcoming school year will allow for intentional time for worship, education and fellowship for all. Anticipate worship experiences at 8:15am and 10:15am with an intentional flow of education (9:20-9:55am) and fellowship (9:55-10:15am) inbetween. Begin your Sunday morning experience with worship, or enter the day with education and fellowship, and then move into worship.
The worship times will shift slightly to allow for a holistic experience for individuals and entire family units. Several opportunities for inter-generational teaching and learning will be offered throughout the year. Your pastors, along with lay leaders, will be offering education classes on Sunday mornings.
