We ask that the children wear masks and come directly to the Sunday School classroom (Room 4 upstairs) when they arrive at church. If you are not sure of where the room is please ask one of the duty elders.

We will be having one "common classroom" for the months of May and June . All ages (3 - 12) are welcome and we are always happy to have helpers join in.
