As our vision statement articulates, we are a people that welcome and love. We seek to be in relationship with each other through our various small groups.
Women’s Spirituality Circle: Experience the rebirth of the Women’s Spirituality Circle. Energize your spiritual life and be in fellowship with other women for casual yet focused conversation. This spiritual opportunity is open to all women 18 years and older. These women meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Church Library. Topics vary based on the movement of the groups participants. Come and explore your faith with us. Contact Mary Anne Wallace.
Family Enrichment and Fellowship
Throughout the fall, winter and spring months are different opportunities for families to gather, share a potluck meal and get to know one another. Caroling Night, Game Night and a special Seder Meal are a few examples of our family centered activities.
Prayer Shawl Ministry: The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a national one, begun as a tangible expression of love for those whom we hold in our prayers because of a time of worry, illness or other difficulty. The patterns are easy and can be knit or crocheted. Anyone can make one, even beginners, and it’s fun to do. We’ve recently formed a group in our church to knit and/or crochet, either for specific persons or to have ready for a time when a need arises. We gather Tuesday evenings at 6:30 in Davidson Lounge. If you’re interested in learning more about our Prayer Shawl group, please contact Darla Harris.
Eskimo Club: The Eskimos were formed in December, 1934, as the men’s club of the Church. In January, 2019, women were invited to join as full members. Today, there are about 35 members. The Eskimos have two objectives: to promote good fellowship among the men and women of the Church and to further the interests of the Church, such as by providing services and donations of financial support to the Church. The Eskimos meet in the “Igloo” (Guptill Hall) at 6:30pm on the first Wednesdays of October through May. Contact Rich Mead or Walter Jellison for more information..
