When you sign up for flowers there is a box for you to mark if you will be taking your flowers home or if you would like to donate them.  If you have already signed up for flowers in the future, please look at the chart and mark your flowers for home or donation.
  • Little Lambs will be starting Tuesday, September 24th and will continue most Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 AM to 11 AM until the middle of May. Children between the ages of 2 and a half and young fives are invited to attend. We ask that two year olds and children not yet potty trained be accompanied by an adult. We learn the truths of God’s Word through Bible lessons, crafts, songs, puppet shows and movement. Just as our bodies need physical food to stay alive our faith needs to be nourished with God’s Word to grow and thrive. Please consider feeding your child’s soul this upcoming year at Little Lambs!
