When he was 18, a kid named Josiah discovered something in the sanctuary that had been lost so long others had forgotten about it. It was the Scriptures. Reading it, Josiah then brought the Word of God afresh to his people.

Likewise God tells Jeremiah,
"Do not say, 'I am only a boy'; for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and you shall speak whatever I command you."

March 18 is Youth Sunday. 
God's going to speak through young voices.
You should hear it.

Church School
Senior High's are reading Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith. After 20 years away from Christianity and the Church, Norris finds herself wrestling with a faith she can't leave behind, but that she doesn't understand or even want.   Amazing Grace is her attempt to understand what the church is talking about by defining key words in ways she can relate to. It'll catch you off guard.

Students in Grades 5 and up (all 3rd Floor Church School Classes) are invited to arrive at 9am for bagels, hot chocolate and fruit, before classes begin at 9:15.

March 18 is Youth Sunday! No Church School 'cause we're leading the Church Service!
