Sunday School, Worship, & Picnic
As we begin to look ahead at where God is leading this gathered community of faith called River Road, we will celebrate the past summer as well as the beginning of a new season, expressing our gratitude for all that makes us the people of God in this time and place.
- 9:45-10:45: Sunday School
- 11:00: Worship with Blessing of our Students and Educators
Parents, bring your children to Sunday School early so you can meet their teachers. Adults, invite those you haven’t seen during the summer months to join you in your Sunday School class that day.
Be present in worship as we pray for and celebrate all those who learn and teach in our community, as well as those who support our educational, missional, and worship ministries at our church.
- 5:00-5:15: Gather for potluck/cookout
- 5:15-6:15: Food is served
- 6:30-7:30: Summer Presentations
Return to the church in the early evening for a church-wide picnic. The picnic will include the deacons serving fried chicken and the rest of us providing sides and desserts.
If your last name begins with:
- A-F: you bring a starchy side;
- G-P: you bring a dessert;
- Q-Z: you bring a salad.
Then we will hear from our summer teams about their summer experiences and adventures to PASSPORTkids!, Hands & Hearts Family Mission Trip, PASSPORT Youth, Vacation Bible School, Unidiversity, and Maine Mission Tour.
Sign up for the potluck by Wednesday, September 6. You may sign up online (scroll below or click here) or by calling the Church Office.
