Cross Training – August 28
Sunday night is the last opportunity for our valuable volunteers to be trained before the new activities begin in September. This is for all ministry leaders, teachers, helpers, greeters, but is especially important for anyone who will be working with children or youth. Please make every effort to come if you did not attend the August 21 training.

See below for many other things that are starting in September!
