Are you kidding? Is it time for WOP-WOP registration already?!? Yup. And the plan is for this year’s musical, “Star Quest” (our 8th year) to be the best ever! The dates for WOP-WOP this year are July 31 - August 4. Pick up your registration form at church or register online. Remember - we always fill up and then have to spill over onto a waiting list.
