MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) will resume meeting on Friday September 12. They will meet at ABC on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month from 9:00 to 11:00 am. Childcare will be provided.
Sunday, June 1, we will begin our summer schedule, with our traditional break from Sunday School. Worship will remain at 10:30. Children ages preschool through completed 5th grade will leave for Sunday School during Worship, from approximately 11:00am to noon. Discussion Time will be at 11:30.
We will have a new Sunday morning schedule starting on March 9. In responding to feedback regarding the schedule we have had since last fall, we will return to a schedule similar to previous years. The key difference is that Sunday School will be 45 minutes long. This will be the new schedule:
- 9:15 – 10:00 Sunday School
- 10:00 – 10:30 Worship Preparation (praise team warm-up, choir warm-up, staff prayer time)
- 10:30 – 11:30 Worship
- 11:30 Fellowship Time
The time for worship will remain the same throughout the year. During the summer months, Sunday School will be suspended and we will have Discussion Time following worship.
