ADULT INSTRUCTION CLASS ~An Adult Instruction class in the basic Christian teachings will begin on Thursday, September 20th. Are you interested? Do you know someone you could invite? This class will prepare you for receiving the Lord’s Supper in the fellowship of this congregation, but also is great for basic evangelism and for a refresher!

Instruction for those to be confirmed this year will be on a separate schedule. Please be on the lookout for a letter from Pastor Schuermann in early September with more information.
