ATTENTION ARC MEN! This fall we will begin a men’s only Sunday School Bible Study using the same material as the Friday morning Men’s Community Bible Study.

Materials will be furnished for you. We invite you to a short informational meeting in the Multipurpose Room after the worship service on Sunday, September 10 with the class beginning September 17. If you have any questions, talk to Ken Hup.
