Youth Sunday School: Our Chi Rho and CYF youth are invited to gather on Sunday mornings for conversation, questions, and donuts. Through Advent (starting November 30), Rev. Nathan will lead a conversation about the Strange Fruits of Advent - hope, peace, love, and joy. How do we as followers of Jesus claim these things? What do they look like in our worlds, especially when there is war, violence, and hate all around? Did we mention the donuts?

Audience: 6th - 12th grade
Class Time: Sundays at 9:15 am
