Meal Shepherds

Imagine that you are recovering from surgery or dealing with a sick loved one. Now imagine that a friend shows up with a basket filled with a warm dinner for your family. That is what the Meal Shepherds do. From time to time there are several families that need meals, but each Meal Shepherd is responsible for one or a few meals. Call the church office if you would like to be on the list of people who make meals.

Movie Night

What can be better than dinner and a movie? How about joining friends for a potluck meal and sharing your thoughts afterwards. On the 3rd Satuday at 5:30pm (or other Saturdays when holidays interfere) gather in the church basement for Movie Night. No reservations are needed, just bring some food to share - home made or store bought are both great. The idea is to have an easy night of entertainment. For more information see John Hayes.
