An Invitation to Serve
                We are inviting you to join the Sunday School Volunteers to share a Bible story or two with our youngsters followed by a hands-on craft and/or a cut and paste activity one Sunday a month.  All materials will be available to you that morning; no preparation required just the love of God and the willingness to share His word in child-like language.  About 30 minutes only one Sunday a month.  It is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!  If you are interested in this opportunity, please see Donelle during coffee hour.
