SUNDAY SCHOOL: Growing in Christ Today in Sunday School, our students will hear how “God Creates Adam and Eve.” including providing them with perfect physical attributes and a lush garden in which to live. God created the world’s many natural resources so it would be a wonderful place for His most treasured creation, human beings, to live. Parents might ask, “How were Adam and Eve different from the rest of God’s creation?”

WEDNESDAY BIBLE CLASS 10 am: Our Bible study is on the Lutheran Catechism. Please join us.
Please have your notes to the church office by noon each Wednesday.
