Sunday School Schedule
Classes for children up to 5th grade will be held every Sunday during the second half of the worship service. All children through grade 5 will start out in the worship service. At the appropriate time, they will be invited to come forward for the Time With Children after which they should be escorted across the street to their classroom.
Classes for youth in grades 6-12 will generally take place on the 2nd and 4th Sundays during the entire service.
- Please fill out and return a Sunday School Registration form for all children and youth so that we have all the contact information and medical (allergy) concerns on file. Forms can be found in the church office and can be returned to the church office.
Crib care is available for families with infants or toddlers.
Single session and multi-week adult classes are offered on various topics throughout the year to help strengthen our understanding of the Bible, Biblical themes, church history, relevant current events as well as other topics of interest.
Faith at Work
Faith at Work discussions are scheduled several times per year. In these discussions, we explore together how our faith informs the work we do in the world, and how our work in the world shapes and affects our faith. They provide an opportunity for the group to learn about the faith journey of the volunteer leader, particularly focused on how his/her faith life and their work life interact.

A flower chart is posted inside the church office and in Jensen Hall. Flowers are given to the glory of God and in remembrance of loved ones, to celebrate a special occasion, to honor someone special, or just because. All flower orders go through the church office. To order flowers just sign your name on the flower chart, fill out a form and leave the form with $25 in the church office. That’s it! Simple.
GRO (Germonds Reaches Out)
The GRO committee functions as an interface with our community for a source of new members. They also provide a Greeter for each service and organize the Coffee Hour and Lemonade ladlers list.
- A new sign up for Fellowship Time is in Jensen Hall. Please add your name so that we may continue with this tradition of fellowship.
Stewardship & Finance
The Stewardship and Finance Committee educates, encourages, and monitors the ways in which God’s gifts of material goods, personal abilities and time are used in the church and shared with others in the world.
Per Capita for 2017 is $34.10 per communicant member
- Every Presbyterian shares in the benefit of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s system of government. Per capita is a set amount of money (apportionment) per member that congregations pay to the larger PC (USA) to share in the expenses associated with coordinating and performing the functions of that system. Thank you for your help with this expense.
Personnel and Administration
The Personnel and Administration Committee uses their skills to ensure that the church is staffed and equipped to operate efficiently and effectively.
Board of Deacons
The Board of Deacons, working in concert with the Pastor, is the primary care giving group for our congregational flock. They disseminate information about upcoming events, maintain the Prayer Chain, connect on a regular basis with flock members, make hospital visits, assist with home communion and oversee the Church Life committee that plans and coordinates the social events of our congregation.
We like to maintain contact with the college students throughout the school year by sending cards, notes, and care packages. Please help us keep in touch by providing your son or daughter’s college address to the church office as soon as you have that information. Thank you.
