In February the Adult Bible study class under the lead-ership of Greg Byrum and John Kreitzer con-tinues their study in the book of Colossians— they meet in the fellowship hall.
The Seekers adult class meets weekly in the library room upstairs in the education building and they continue with topical based discus-sion lessons with Biblical study as well. This class is led by Natalie Hullander.
The Pre-K class and God’s Eden (elementary age children) will continue their study of the Wedding at Cana through Febru-ary 17. They will begin a new lesson series “The Last Supper” beginning February 24 and continue through Easter. These classes meet in the upstairs “God’s Eden” area of the edu-cation building.
The Youth class under the leadership of Katie Kesson and Courtney Gatlin continue their studies in the Old and New Testament. They meet upstairs in the education building as well.
We continue to provide nursery support as needed during the Sunday School hour and encourage everyone to consider attending the class designed for you.
The Wrap-Arounds will meet on February 17 in the parlor at 3:30 pm. Join us as we fellow-ship, create prayer shawls for our congrega-tion and simply get to know each other. If you are interested in this ministry but are uncertain of how skilled you are, come join us...there is usually someone present who can help you with technique!!

Kids’Club will meet on February 2 at Bowl n’ Bounce in Lake Wylie with our congregation.
