- Children’s Church for completed kindergarten through completed second grade
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.
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.
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 or by calling the Church Office.
