3 year olds through adults will explore wind and fire in fun activities to remind us of Pentecost. Meet on the sidewalk along Larry Bird Street. Childcare is provided for younger children.

BUILDING UPDATE: The painting in the sanctuary is nearly completed and the next step is the carpet! You are welcome to see the sanctuary as the construction is finished and the redecorating is happening.

Blessing of the Backpacks will be August 6 during worship. All students and teachers should bring their backpack or school bag to receive a blessing for the new school year.
