Save the Date— for the Lamb of God Art Show! Wednesday, April 25, 5:00-7:00pm. Featuring art by all the LOG students! More details to come.

Sunday School— After much thought and consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2/3 year old Sunday School class due to low attendance. If your child is  3 1/2 or 4 AND has attended preschool, please join the preK/K class on Sunday mornings. If your child is 2-3 1/2 or has not attended preschool yet, we invite you and your child to spend fellowship time with other young children and parents in the infant and toddlers room in Fellowship Hall.
