Once A Month Prayer Group

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your mind in Christ Jesus. 

-Philippians 4: 6-7-

Prayer with and for one another is one of the great gifts of our faith.

As you navigate life's stressors, struggles, and challenges, we want to support each other in prayer. We gather first Tuesday of every month and our next meeting will be February 7th at 7 pm.

If you are interested in joining this group, please let pastor Sooah know. (

Sunday School Updates

Dear Sunday School families,

May the peace and grace of Jesus Christ be with you. 

I am writing this letter to share Sunday School updates and our plan.

As you may know, we are looking for a new Sunday School Director. We appreciate your prayers for the entire process and our next Sunday School Director. 

While searching for a new Sunday School director, we plan to have Sunday School twice a month.

I appreciate our Sunday School teachers, Darla and Shirley, especially Grace, who will help us plan Sunday School activities during this transition time. 

Our next Sunday School will begin on January 29th. From February, we plan to have Sunday School on the 2nd and 4th Sundays.

On 1st and 3rd Sundays, we invite children and youth to worship with our church family. We plan to provide the children's message and children's worship bulletin (coloring, maze, and word search related to the children's message).

May God provide us wisdom and guidance as we navigate this transition time. May God wrap God's loving arms around us and fill us with new hope. 

Many Blessings, 

Your pastor, Sooah
