Please be on-time for the next PACE class on Jan. 7th as the Manville’s will need the full hour for their presentation - Thanks


Last Sunday


John Estill opened class with a prayer.



Ken Rorie reminded us that we are doing the normal 4th Sunday Brookdale service on January 14th, so that we don’t interfere with the PACE Class field trip to the Biblical Arts Museum on Jan 28th.  We have several volunteers signed up, but still need:

1.  Service leader
2.  Musician
3.  Music leader
4.  General assistant

Please contact Ken at if you would like to volunteer.

Floy Rorie passed around the sign-up sheet for the field trip to the Biblical Arts Museum on Jan. 28th


The PACE Class will serve dinner for the Journey of Hope meeting on Thursday, February 8th.  Contact Marv Petsel if you would like to help.



Today was Social/Summary Sunday.  No formal lesson.  Class broke into groups to discuss and give feedback to the Programming committee on the last 6 months of PACE lessons.



Snacks were brought by everyone for Social Sunday.


The closing prayer was given by John Estill.






Barb Petsel’s friend, Linda Marsdon Thomas, passed away on Christmas Eve after a short illness. She was very active in giving her time and experiences to help others.

Join a Committee!


A new Sunday School year begins at the beginning of September and some people are needed to step up and take a leadership position. All of the committees in the PACE class are working hard to make the Class vibrant with great programs and great fellowship. All members are strongly encouraged to be a part of one of the committees. Volunteers and those who can help when needed are especially needed for these committees: Care, Leadership, Greeters, and Program.
