Service Project Assembly

On Rally Day, September 10 at 9:30am, join the cross+generational team to assemble the items collected into “kits” to assist Phoenix CDS in their work. Their primary goal is to end homelessness and provide the individuals, families and veterans they serve with a warm, safe place to live independently – and away from the dangers of the streets. Phoenix CDS works with them to set and achieve goals, make healthy life choices, find employment, build skills, and become stable, self-sufficient members of society.

Sunday School

Sunday School classes (ages 3 through high school) will kick-off the new school year by participating in the cross+generational service project and then parents and students will have time to go to the classrooms and meet teachers. There will be a shortened class time on Sunday, September 10.

Adult Faith Formation Classes during Education Hour Resume Sunday, Sept 17

Adult classes such as Man to Man and Women in the Word will officially begin on September 17 during Education Hour at 9:30am. Adults are encouraged to participate in the service project on September 10, working in partnership with our young people to do God’s work.
