Fellowship and Learning for Families Together!
Forming Faith this Sunday after Church
Sunday will feature a children's sermon. We'll also be holding our multi-generational education time after church. Our discussion topic will be "The Season of Advent." For that, we'll learn about Isaiah's prophecy which foreshadowed Jesus' coming and make advent wreaths to take home.

Painting: The Edward Hicks' revolutionary war painting The Peaceable Kingdom represented by Quaker settlers in Philadelphia. The paining was based on this Sunday's Isaiah prophecy.
