 FAMILY FAITH NIGHTS!!!

On the second Wednesday night of each month we will have a ‘Family Faith Night.’ These will run from September through April, and will begin with a short worship service from 7pm until 7:35 or 7:40. Two of the Wednesday night worships (October 17 and November 14) are required class meetings. After worship we may conduct a multi-generational family educational event (ALL ages), or service project (or both). This will help attending confirmation students and their families to record worship notes AND a service project.

The Confirmation Class was studying John the Baptist, and how what he wore and carried with him was a reflection of his role as a prophet of God. These photos were taken by our confirmation small groups, showing what they were carrying in their pockets at class that night. How does what YOU carry around show who you are, and what is most important in your life?
