ATTENTION 4TH & 5TH GRADE GIRLS – Starting in September, during Wednesday Night Wave, there will be a “pre-teen” class for girls in 4th and 5th grade discussing life’s current issues: physically, spiritually, socially, and/or emotionally. Using scripture and Biblical principles as a foundation, we will strive to help channel girls’ current everyday social and emotional battles to encourage them to positively influence themselves and those around them. The class will also focus on the book “Lies Girls Believe” by Dannah Gresh. We hope to illustrate with God, there is no circumstance too big, small or unseen! Please contact Tracey Stauffer or Crystal Brown with any questions. They will be in the 4th & 5th grade Sunday school class after the 10:30 service on Sunday August 25 and September 1 to address additional questions and give a preview of the book.
