September 10th is Rally Day Kickoff Sunday! Rally Day at Pacific Hills signals to us that the summer has ended, and the fall program is underway. Sunday school classes will begin their new program on September 10th. Our youth confirmation classes will have started up a few days earlier on September 6th.
We invite all teachers to participate in teacher installation, whether you are a Sunday School teacher or a small group leader. The Installation Service will take place at both services. Rally Day festivities will take place during the Sunday School hour in Acker Hall and will include refreshments. Pastor will discuss our Milestone Ministry, the Four Keys to Nurturing Faith and our Enduring Faith Curriculum. After this opening, the students will be dismissed to their classrooms for abbreviated instruction. Parents, please respond to Pam Hafsaas
If you are not regularly in the Word, now is the time to rededicate yourself. Now is the time to get involved with Sunday morning Bible Study, or a Bible Study throughout the week, or both!
