Fellowship and Parish Life
One of our greatest strengths that we are told over and over again is how friendly and welcoming we are as a Congregation. Our Parish Life committee is always busy planning brunches, dinners, and other monthly special events. There are also Fellowship groups that hold their own events throughout the year. Yet there are a whole host of opportunities for fellowship within our church: from Coffee Hour after church, to participating in Adult Education classes, Mission trips, Retreats, or simply joining one of our Choirs, or serving on one of our many Boards or Committees. The following are the opportunities, events, and happenings for 2012-2013. More information can be found in the Church Bulletins and Newsletter.
Every Sunday – Join us downstairs in the Vestry after worship for Coffee and conversation.
