Save the Date…..February 12th there will be a new member class at Dekorra after worship. We will gather together around 9:45am for breakfast and after we will meet for about an hour.

Pastor Ryan will be offering a First Communion class later this month on Sunday February 26th from 9:45am to 11:00am. If you have a child that is in 5th grade, or if you feel like your child can understand and fully appreciate the meaning of the sacrament, please plan on
attending this important education opportunity with them. If you are interested I encourage you to make a note on a communion card and hand it to an usher or you may email Pastor Ryan (firstname.lastname@example.org). Look for more information in the February newsletter.
