Questions & Answers

Question: Will Wednesday night dinner be served potluck
style?

No, twice a month, dinner will be provided for a minimal cost. We are working with local restaurants to have the meals prepared for us. We will also provide a salad bar each week. Once a month the dinner will be provided by either youth group, gems, or cadets as a fundraiser.

Question: Will Wednesday night kid’s singing time take the
place of singing before Sunday school?

No, Sunday singing will stay intact, but may be slightly shorter. The Wednesday night program will focus on more new songs. Songs to be learned for Christmas and Easter church services will be practiced on both days.

Question: What kind of program can we expect for the Kindergarteners – 2nd grade?

We are really excited to begin the year with a children’s study of Pilgrim’s Progress! See the insert in the bulletin that gives an overview of what will be studied for 13 weeks. The program is jammed packed with exciting readings, activities and music. Each child will also receive their own special copy!
