Smiling Saints

The Smiling Saints Sunday Bible Class offers a great opportunity

to study the Word, fellowship with others, and be involved in

outreach and service activities. We meet each Sunday at 10:05-10:50

between services in the East end of the Fellowship Hall. We

typically follow the International Sunday School Uniform Lesson

Studies from Standard Lesson Commentary, that goes through

the entire Bible every 5 years.  We study the NIV translation.

We invite you to join us next Sunday!
