Adult Sunday School

Yes, Lord, I Have Sinned, But I h ave Several Excellent Excuses

The adult Sunday School class that meets in the fellowship hall never quits. They just shift gears.  Angie Barnes and Archie Verdiglione lead a summer long class. This year they are studying the book by James Moore, Yes, Lord, I Have Sinned, But I Have Several Excellent Excuses. This book will look at a number of things we do regularly, that we don’t realize are sins, and what we can do about it. Join the class on Sunday mornings at 9:00 after Café Worship in the fellowship hall.
