Can you find humor in the Bible? Stay after church on Sunday, July 23rd, for a picnic lunch—hot dogs, salad, rice, lemonade and cake for the low, low cost of $3.00 per person. Following lunch, Rod will share with us about how to and where to find humor in the Bible. There may be a lot of laughing! We will also formally welcome back Rod following the appointment setting at the recent Annual Conference Session. Mark the date!

A book club? A group to advocate for important issues? We are all encouraged to find ways to connect with one another through our interpersonal connections. If you have an idea, we want to hear it and see if we can bring it to reality.
This faith sharing group for women invites you to be a part of their journey. This group focuses on sharing and Bible study. There is no homework and the group is open to women of all ages. Leadership is passed around and does not require any special training. This kind of experience is at the heart of Christian fellowship and enrichment. New groups form as existing groups grow.
Many of our members choose to participate also in smaller groups, which are called “circles,” where they socialize together and continue their mission of support, education and service to the local church, to the larger community, and to world beyond.
Women of all ages are welcome to participate. Meetings for most of the circles happen during the daytime, but there is also an active circle in the evening, for working women. We have something for everyone!
Sandy Adams leads this loving project to create and bless beautiful expressions of care and concern that are given to those in special need of comfort. Prayer shawls symbolize shelter, peace and spiritual sustenance. They can also be called comfort shawls or peace shawls. The creation and presentation of a prayer shawl, like all acts of generosity, enriches the giver as well as the recipient. Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful way of passing on love and joy. If you don’t knit or crochet, there are also shawls made of fabric.
All women of the church who are interested in children are invited to join this busy group of women. This is a group that started as young mothers over thirty years ago and has grown together since.
The mission of the group is to support local church programs, especially as they relate to children. It is also a support group for members in all life challenges. The group actively welcomes new members.
