Sunday School
All are welcome to attend Sunday School before worship
beginning at 8:45 am; classes are available for both
children and adults. The children’s class meets in the
chapel and the adult class in the adjoining gathering room.

Holy Communion
Those who are baptized and believe that Jesus Christ,
crucified and risen, is truly present in, with, and under the
forms of bread and wine for the forgiveness of sins, life, and
salvation, are welcome to the Lord’s Table. Please let the
pastor know you wish to receive this gift of life by holding out
your open hands. Receive the wafer, move to one of the
servers and dip the wafer into the wine, then partake. You
are encouraged to bring young children forward for a
blessing. The sign for a blessing is folded hands.
