Homecoming: We are preparing to have overflow seating for both the Centennial Historical Presentation at 10:00 am and the worship service at 11:00 am on Homecoming. The Young Married Class (old nursery) and the Choir room will be set up with monitors and will accommodate up to 75 people. As a courtesy to our invited guests and elderly, we are asking any of our younger generation to sit in the overflow seating. In addition, we will have overflow seating for our lunch. As a courtesy to our guests and elderly, we are asking our Youth, after they get their food, to exit through the front door of the Fellowship Building and to eat their meal in the basement of the Fellowship Building. This will help with the flow of the lunch line. We also are asking some of our younger generation to eat under the tents set up outside the fellowship building, weather permitting. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in making this a day to remember.
