Due to COVID-19 we are not having any in-person small groups at this time.
As our entire Church works to connect all to Christ during a very different time in our community, we are working to keep our youth connected as well.
Next, weekly emails with a Sunday School lesson for the week will go out to our 7th – 12th grade families and our 5th & 6th grade families. These emails will go out Sunday mornings at 9:00 am. If you didn’t get one last week, email Cara.
We also have online small groups scheduled for our youth. Students need to have a gmail email to participate, as we will be using Google Hangouts. (Or have access to one during the meeting time.) Contact Cara to share students gmail address to get connected to a particular class!
