STUDY - The Nurture Commission and Elders are working together to offer an all-church study (Upside Down Living: Sharing Faith Stories) beginning in September and encourage everyone to join in. We are asking all small groups to participate for the 6 lessons. We propose the groups meet Sept. 13, 27; Oct. 11, 25; Nov. 8, 15 and we will host an all-church wrap-up on Nov. 29th. We are excited about this all-church event!
SMALL GROUPS - If you're interested in joining a small group for the all-church study or other reasons, please talk to Sheri N (chair of nurture) or one of the elders: Wade, Wanda, or Dallas.
