Learning Center This Week




This Fall, we will focus on Filling our Spiritual Lunch Bags with the Fruit of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control.  The Fruit of the Spirit is God’s gift to us to help us grow together in our relationship with Jesus and show God’s love to others.
Sunday School will be held outside starting September 19. Dress accordingly. Rainy weather, we will gather in Farnum Hall. Masks required. We believe cultivating a sense of belonging, feeling loved, being a part of community, and mission are important to our faith formation. We will begin in worship all together and then be dismissed for Sunday School this coming Sunday. Our Sunday School time will include sharing joys and concerns, prayer, an offertory, engaging activities and bible stories, invitations to wonder and hospitality. This week’s children’s offering will help our Church Mission ministry collect nutritional breakfasts items for children in need.  Please have your child bring any of the follow to church.
  • All Varieties of cold cereals
  • Hot cereals such as oatmeal (instant or regular), cream of wheat
  • Pancake mix and syrup
