Ok, every year at this time we all say that same thing, “where did the summer go.” Truth be told, the same place all seasons go and remember there is still a month left.

That being said Christian Education is ready to roll into an exciting and inviting new season. It all starts with Rally Day on September 8th when students will meet and talk with their teachers and then the whole church (sign up in the Chapel) foes to Red Bank Battlefield for the church picnic.

The 60 and over small group resumes on Tuesday September 10th at 1pm in the Lounge. We will be reading Anne Lamott’s Hallelujah Anyway. If you have any questions see or call Milt Fredericks.

September 15th, we resume all Sunday school classes. Dave Platt is in the Lounge. Pastor Phil’s Vital Congregation class will meet in the Sanctuary and all children’s classes start. A posting of class dates and topics is on the Christian Education Bulletin Board.

Speaking of planning ahead- here is the “Save the Date” for Sunday December 1st – The Advent Wreath Party luncheon. Wreath making and singing begins at Noon. Please circle this on your calendar as it is a great opportunity for our church family to start the season of Advent.

It is a busy and ambitious schedule and we think there is more to come. Summer was a great time for some relaxation but even more for staff and committees to meet, share ideas and hopefully create a full program for everyone.

A big thanks to all our teachers and to such a supportive congregation.
