On Sunday September 25th, we will welcome UF President Kent Fuchs and Santa Fe President Jackson Sasser for our College Sunday. President Fuchs will present the sermon at both the 8:30 a.m. and the 10:55 a.m. services, and President Sasser will offer a prayer for the students of Gainesville. Everyone is invited to join for either service to celebrate the community of education and faith that surrounds Gainesville.

Please join us at 8:30 a.m. in the Chapel with Communion or at 10:55 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Nursery care is available from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for families attending worship.
