+ SUNDAY SCHOOL UPDATE
Many thanks to all who attended the meeting last Sunday and your assistance in helping determine our next steps with Sunday School. Responding to popular demand, the 9 am Sunday Service will continue at this time.

Ideas discussed for Fall included having a short Sunday school class right after the 9 am service; including music in the service and/or class; and incorporating a video component in the short lesson after the 9 am service.

No firm decision was reached, so we welcome more feedback on what is desired for the next Church year. Another meeting on plans for the fall will happen this summer at a time to be announced in the weekly Acts. If you have ideas to share in the meantime, please feel free to email Peter Patton.

Where in the World?

Two of these photos are from John & Linda Day’s latest adventure. John writes: “Just had an amazing 4 days in this part of the country. The arch may give it away! Haha! 38 14’ 13.23”N, 109 33’ 12.76” W.”

The third photo is a bit more local. Can you guess where and/or whose vehicle?
