and when he is old he will not depart from it.”

We will be registering children for Church School this Sunday, September 10, along with blessing the start of the school year. I am including a copy of the registration form here for anyone who will not be in church this weekend or who wants to save a tree by going electronic. Paper copies will be available Sunday for anyone who needs them. Please fill out one form for each child.
There is quite a bit to look forward to this year. In addition to our usual Fast projects, Lenten Retreat and Yolka, the children in grade 3 will be singing for St. John's Day services. I will send the full calendar next week.
I am looking forward to the start of the new year and hope you are too.
