Sept. 8: Sunday School for All

On September 8, all are warmly invited to a hearty breakfast in Pope Hall at 10 am, plus a preview of the four adult Christian Formation classes being offered on Sunday mornings this fall. High-schoolers should head to Pope Hall, too. The children have classes designed just for them at 10 am, too. For this first week, children ages 0 to 3 should gather in the Crib Room for a sweet lesson, while others through grade 5 should meet in Witter Hall for a kick-off to Sunday School. They'll divide into their classrooms the following Sunday for lessons. The middle-school class, "Picture This," gets underway this Sunday at 10 am in the Youth Room. We'll have maps to the classrooms available, and of c

Sept. 1: Children's Choir

During the 9 am service this Sunday, the children will perform "Peace Like a River." Join us in Children's Chapel to practice! Before the service begins, you'll see a Children's Chapel adult leader carrying a special banner near the church entrance. Meet there!

Sunday School Teachers Needed

Our Children's Sunday School teachers teach in pairs and alternate weeks, so volunteers will have "downtime" and the chance to benefit from our Adult Formation classes this semester. Scheduling is underway now, so please contact Carlie Boone to add your name to the mix: (251) 545-1176 or Thanks!

A parent needs to attend (briefly) as well. Please contact Jane Thompson for more details:

Sept. 22: Blood Drive

Starting November 21, 1978, things began to go downhill for me and my little family. Our daughter Megan had been born the week before, and all had gone smoothly…until I started bleeding heavily…very heavily. I had to leave my baby and ending up spending a week in the hospital….and after fainting twice and four trips to surgery, I finally got to go home, and oh, I was so very weak. But I would have been even weaker had it not been for the generosity of three anonymous people who had donated blood, which was desperately needed…and appreciated. I only wish I could still donate to help others. Even though I can’t, maybe you can…. Did you know that 38% of the population is eligible to donate bloo

Aug. 11: Back-to-School Blessings

On August 11, all students, faculty, and staff of any school are invited to attend our 9 am service for a back-to-school blessing. We'll have favors for the children, too. Round up your kiddo's circle of friends and bring them all in for a blessing. And don’t forget to stick around afterward for some special treats and games as well!

Book Study for Moms

Join Ashley Danos in the School Library this fall for a book study designed for busy moms, Gloria Furman's Treasuring Christ When Your Hands are Full. Motherhood is tough and it's hard to experience true joy in God, our children, and the gospel among the mundane daily tasks and ever growing to-do lists. Join us on Sunday mornings at 10 am as we reinvent our vision of motherhood together around what the Bible teaches, and learn how to pursue a vibrant relationship with God and see the mundane moments for what they really are - worship. Books are available for purchase in the Church Library ($7) or on Amazon. Looking forward to a great semester! Class starts September 15. 10 am in the School
