Sunday School and Children's Chapel 
We are enjoying coming together as a multi-age group both at Chapel and during Sunday School. The Season of Easter gives us so much to learn about Jesus as we hear the Gospels about how He spends 40 days building up his followers in preparation for His Ascension.
Come join us for 30 minutes after work to pray!  Every Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m., some of us come together for a brief time of Evening Prayer with Holy Eucharist. It combines the end-of-the day liturgy with familiar prayers and a time for personal meditation and communion. Come join us for a time of fellowship and prayer; see what a difference it makes in your week!
