Bring in your Box Tops for Jefferson-Houston School — The Box Tops for Education program is a great way to support Jefferson-Houston School. Bring in your Box Tops and we will donate them to the school. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents. There are hundreds of products that participate in the program, for example Kleenex facial tissues, Betty Crocker and Pillsbury products, Ziploc sandwich bags, and Cheerios. Look for this logo, cut it out, and drop it in the collection tin at the back of the sanctuary. Contact Erin Lee at [email protected] for information.

Children’s Church on Sundays —  our Children’s Church opportunity provides an educational lesson for children during the time of the sermon on Sundays. Children’s Church will be designed for children up to 12 years of age. Our children will be invited to begin the worship hour in the Sanctuary as a part of the full community so that they can share in the Call to Worship, Opening Hymn, and Opening Prayer. During the Passing of the Peace, the children will be led by their teachers into the children’s classrooms. The children will have a lesson and activity, and then will return to the Sanctuary following the sermon to experience and participate in the Pastoral Prayer, Offertory, Communion, and the Closing Hymn each week.
Our caring nursery staff watches infants through age 5 from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. each Sunday in Classroom 1 on the first floor.
The Hal Fisher Adult Sunday School Class meets Sundays at 9:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. One-time or returning guests welcome!

The next class will be a Sunday in August and will meet from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Pizza and childcare will be provided. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to [email protected]
