• Exciting news for Grade 3 students! – Each year Walton Church is proud to present our Grade 3 Sunday School students with their own copy of the Action Bible. For the past two years, we have done curbside pickup and porch deliveries of these special gifts. This year I’m happy to announce that Bible presentations will take place in person in the Sanctuary on Celebration Sunday, June 12th during our 10:00 am service. Please mark your calendars for this day as we hope all Grade 3 children and their families can take part in person. If you are unable to attend on June 12, please contact the church office and we will arrange a special delivery to your door.
