On Sept 13th we will also walk through what you do as an acolyte on Sundays. Actual confirmation classes will start on Wed., Sept. 20st at 6:30 pm.

Please let pastor Dennis know how many from your family are coming to the Pizza Feed on Wed., Sept 13th so he orders enough food. Please, call 925-2844 church, 929-2927 Pastor Dennis or email High Schoolers are welcome to come and have pizza with us, too. Ninth graders who are ready to be confirmed this Fall, we’ll start meeting in October. (Now is a great time to finish up any missing assignments and/or worship notes!) Your actual confirmation Sunday will most likely be October 22nd.
