Beginning Sunday, June 8, Sunday School will begin at 9:30 A.M. and conclude at 10:25 A.M.
At 10:30, all will gather in the Fellowship Hall where we first will have Sunday School Assembly. Following the assembly, we will have fellowship, coffee, tea and snacks, and greet and welcome visitors. Worship service still will start at 11:00 A.M.
This change in schedule will last from June 8 through August 31. The Implementation Team recommended this trial in response to suggestions from the prayer triads and to changes recommended in the Future Story that was adopted last November. The general board approved the recommendation June 1.
Part of the rationale for the change is that it will provide time before the worship service for the whole congregation to meet visitors, welcome them, and talk to them, as well as have fellowship with each other, and it will provide more time for Sunday School lessons.
