College Sunday School Class meets in The Well (Room 148, Light House) at 9:45 am.  College students- Having a difficult time plugging in with a church?  You're not alone.  For years, one of the hardest things to do for college students is to find a church and then, if that isn't hard enough, to  find ways to plug in.  Join us, Sunday mornings at 9:45 am, as we begin our summer college SS class discussing what it would look like to ask a different question about finding a church.  Instead of trying to find a church, what would it look like to be the church?  What exactly is the church and why does it matter so much to us?  Hope to see you there! 

Nailbenders meet at 8:00 a.m. (Second Saturday of the month) at

 the Lexington Chick-fil-A (5560 Sunset Blvd.) then leave from there to assist individuals in need.  Everyone is welcome to help!  Please contact Keith Hall with questions:
