Greetings SBCLA Church Family:

Our Sunday Church Adult Bible Classes and our Children Church School are very excited about returning back to in person classes and hybrid too!!! However, before this can take place, we need your HELP!!

We are in NEED of Adult Bible Class Teachers and Children's Church Teachers. Unfortunately, our children have not attended Sunday School here at SBC, since the Pandemic. We need three teachers for the adult classes and seven for the Children's Church. These committed Teachers would only teach one Sunday per month. Please call or text me regarding your interest as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from you.

Love and Grace,

Dr. Kathleen
