  • Children’s Sunday School (ages 4-5) meets in the preschool room downstairs. Our teachers, Mrs. Moulton and Mrs. Folsom, use the “He Established a Testimony” curriculum (published by Truth:78). (Children’s Sunday School does not meet during the summer months.)
Coffee and Fellowship at 10:00 a.m.
  • Held in the Fellowship Hall downstairs
Corporate Worship Service at 10:30 a.m.

Fellowship (Brown Bag Lunch) after Worship Service
  • Held in the Fellowship Hall downstairs
  • Everyone is invited to bring their own lunch for a time of informal fellowship after the corporate worship service. This is a wonderful opportunity to discuss the sermon and the Lord’s work in our lives and to grow in genuine fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
  • Once a month, we invite everyone to join us for a more formal potluck fellowship lunch.
