2017 Winter/Spring Calendar
January brings new changes, as well as a new calendar for the youth. Please check the Youth News Rack in the Narthex in January for the new 2017 winter/spring calendar of events! And as always – the information about how to subscribe to the “Remind 101” messaging tool is on the bottom of the rack (green for Jr. High and purple for Sr. High info.) Text/Email alerts are sent out once or twice a week to remind students about events or changes to events. Also a weekly scripture/encouraging word is sent to students (and parents who are subscribers).

Do you have an idea? I’ll always take suggestions. I heard one last Sunday that I’m going to try to implement! I’m always open to LISTENING to new ideas! We’ll need greeters, ushers, singers and more! Stay tuned!
