Details & Registration Link Below
Children go directly to Faith Quest this Sunday!
We are excited, blessed, and grateful to announce, Faith Quest Sunday School (age 4 through 6th grade) has resumed, and meets this Sunday, November 21!

Special thanks to Genal Heinsen and Dana Tran for their willingness to lead our efforts.

As we have done in the past, children will join their parents for the beginning of worship. After the Children’s Message, children will be invited to go to Faith Quest. (Except this Sunday, children will go directly to class without attending the first part of worship.) Classes will include activities, crafts, songs, and prayer. We have begun planning for our Children’s Christmas Program. Due to varied vaccination status, and children under 12 not being vaccinated, and our classes including all ages as we get started, all children are asked to wear masks at this time.

Register online here for Faith Quest. Please register to assist our planning and efforts.

An initial and brief look ahead includes the following schedule for Faith Quest to meet:
November 21, (No Class November 28)
December 5, December 12 (Children’s Christmas Program)

If you have any questions, please email, Genal HeinsenDana Tran, or Pastor Jamie.

We look forward to having you join us soon, as our quest to grow in faith continues!
