BIBLE & BAGELS

Middle and high school students join us each Sunday! We’ll start in the sanctuary with the rest of the church for the beginning of the worship service and and when the younger children head out to Faith Hall, the youth will head over to the Center for Spiritual Renewal (CSR). This will be a time to go deeper into the scripture and in our faith.

Got questions or want to help with teaching?  Email Sherlyn@jupiterfirst.org or…. turn over that Connection Card on Sunday morning and write FOOD, TEACHER or BOTH!

If you’d like to sponsor pizza for one night this semester, we’d greatly appreciate it! Just scan the code to the left or follow this link.  Thank you in advance!
