We are so blessed to have a number of small groups with varying interests and focus meeting in our church. We have included below a list of the groups for more information on any of these groups you may use the contact person if listed or contact the church secretary at 477-6230, or email@example.com.
This is a friendly and social group that makes quilts as well as a host of other knitted and crocheted goods. Some of the quilts are prayer quilts that we dedicate during worship and then give to individuals in our congregation in need of prayers. By way of these quilts we hope to wrap, figuratively and literally, these folks in our prayers. During these dedications worship participants are invited to tie a knot on the quilt as they say a prayer for the person who will receive the quilt. Other quilts are for sale and the proceeds are donated to local missions. Still others are donated to local missions. All who are interested are invited to attend this group no matter what your skill level. This group appreciates the help from anyone interested participating in any part of the production and assembly of quilts, knitted or crocheted hand-made goods. Patchwork-plus meets the second and fourth Thursdays of most months (they do not meet over the summer) in the lounge of our church (see our calendar for specific dates). They meet from 10:30am- 2pm and anyone attending is invited to bring a lunch or order pizza from across the street.
Evening Study Group
This group meets the third Tuesday of the month most of the year. This study is an open-minded alternative to studies that attempt to give participants all the answers and instead strives to create an environment where participants can interact with one another in exploring what’s next in their faith journey. “Through exposure to provocative theological and spiritual insights and the engagement of group conversation, participants will experience how profoundly important the journey itself is. Beginning on June 7:00 PM in the church Lounge, this group will begin a new study entitled – ‘Countering Pharaoh’s Production-Consumption Society Today’. Some of the themes that will be explored include: ‘How can liberals and conservatives engage each other? What is the significance of baptism? What is the meaning of neighborhood? What does coffee have to do with it? How are we to understand the role violence plays in the Scriptures? How do we recover the biblical practice of acknowledging loss? The group will meet once a month, usually on the third Tuesday, please see our calendar for specific dates). All are invited to join this energizing time of growing and stretching our faith! Questions can be directed to Pastor Dave, 477-6030 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
During these 3 sessions, participants are invited to learn more about our Christian faith, heritage, and the uniqueness of the reformed tradition which our church is a part of. At the conclusion of the course participants are given the opportunity to become Active Confirmed Members of the congregation. We recommend this class for members who desire to learn more about or church as well as non-members who desire membership. Our church strongly suggests this class for all persons wishing to be married in or have a child baptized in our church. This class takes place twice a year for more information or to join the next session please contact the church office at 477-6030 or email@example.com.
Afternoon Book Study
This is a wonderful group for fellowship, learning, prayer, and deepening one’s relationship with God and other friends of faith. New Comers are always welcome. This time spent together studying God’s word is a wonderful way to strengthen our relationship with God and others. The study of this group changes material periodically throughout the year as we move from one study to another. This group generally meets the first and third Tue. At 2pm (please see our calendar for up coming dates). For more information about the current study please see our calendar or contact the church office at 477-6030, firstname.lastname@example.org.
