*| CHIMES OF FAITH (Grades 4-6)
This group of 4th-6th graders chooses to combine faith formation and the ringing of choir chimes (resonant aluminum tubes) on Sundays mornings 10:00-10:45 am, instead of the regular Sunday School class. However, on Sundays when Joyful Noise is singing in the morning, COF members not involved with that group will visit the regular Sunday School class.
