Children’s Ministry Class Planned For Wednesday Evening

Opportunity Presbyterian Church, 202 N. Pines Road, is kicking off the fall season with new classes for adults and children.

Wednesday night children’s ministry, for kids in grades K-5, makes its return next week. The free program featuring music, arts and crafts, games, and Bible study will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. each Wednesday.

Kids in grades 3-5 who are members of the children’s choir will gather each Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. for practice. Dinner will be served each week at 6 p.m. (There is a $2 charge for the meal.) No advance registration is required.

There will be educational opportunities for adults on Sundays at 10 a.m. The free classes begin Sept. 21.

Classes include “Hymns: History, Harmony, and Humor,” which will explain the stories behind some favorites and how hymns are chosen for worship services, and “Christian Perspectives on Specific Current Events,” which is a discussion group that examines the world we live in.

No advance registration is required for the adult classes. For more information, call the church office at 924-9750.
