ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS
The Bible is clear on what we are to do when we come together, but what about how we are to relate to one another? Sixty times in the Bible, we are instructed on how we are to treat one another. In this new Sunday School class, Living out the One Another Commands, we will look at these commands to see how we can follow them together!  Join us Sunday at 10:45 a.m. for this new class.
