Bridge Lessons

We have enough people interested in Bridge lessons that we will be offering a class this Fall. If you are interested in learning or relearning to play bridge please join us. We welcome both youth and adults. Bridge is a fascinating game. If you have ever played Hearts or Spades or Whist, then you already have a head start. The lessons will be at church on Friday nights from 6:30 to 9:00 on the following dates:

October 21, 28

November 4, 11, 18

Contact Susan Taylor ([email protected]) or David Niles ([email protected]) for more information.

We will include all individuals in the prayers list for four consecutive weeks, and then they will be removed from the list. If the prayer need is ongoing, please reach out and we will keep their names on the list. If anyone's prayer need is shorter than four weeks, please also note that. This way we will keep all prayer lists updated and recent.
