9:30 am - 10:30 am         YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS, HIBBARD HALL
                                         
           Led by Zach Walker

This Youth Sunday School class focuses on being intentional. Intentionally listen to God, for God, and seeing him anywhere and everywhere. We take the songs that make it on the radio.  Listen for what God can teach us through others, as we share scripture, ideas, and stories, that not only inspire, but remind us that God is not just at Church.
