Journaling Class

Pastor Sonnenberg is ready to do another Journaling Class. The class has a maximum of six participants. Those in the course will determine the times and dates.


If you are interested, we will have a sign-up sheet in the Narthex. The first six to sign up will be in the next class. If more than six people signed up, we can hold them over for the next class.


Children & Teachers Needed for Sunday School

We are looking for families with school-age children who would like to participate in Sunday School.  This year we will be using the Concordia Publishing House Curriculum "Enduring Faith." We are seeking teachers who would like to be on rotation throughout the school year.

Please get in touch with Pastor Sonnenberg or Rod Larson if you have children who would like to participate in Sunday School or if you would like to help teach the children.
