  • 5th & 6th Grade girls 9:15-10:15 on Sundays: 2 Sundays a month

Any students 4th grade or older are asked to sign up on the sheet in the Gathering Area if you are interested. The Skit Team will be writing and directing the skits this year. Those signing up need to be available to perform on both Sunday 10:30 am and Wednesday 5:30 pm services listed on the sign up sheet. Actors also need to be able to attend practice times.
Youth Bells
We are looking for any youth from 5th grade and on who are interested in being a part of the youth bell choir, no experience needed! We will be performing at all family worships and potentially more. Practices will be from 1-2 pm each Sunday starting on October 13th. Email me if you are interested or have any questions. ~ Abby Scheel
