We’ll all have fun learning together. The cost is $7.50 per person so register NOW. Tickets are on sale each Sunday in the Fellowship Hall. The event is sponsored by the Empty Nesters Group.

Refreshments will be available for purchase at the dance. This fundraiser will support the purchase of food supplies for the Our Daily Bread Food Pantry and for the HVAC system replacement in the Disciples Den. There will not be babysitting provided so let those kiddos “shake a leg” and dance.
