Daylight savings time ends on Sunday, November 5th at 2:00am.  Please remember to fall back or you will be an hour early for church!!


Stop by the office door, grab a sticky note, and write down something you are thankful for. It can be anything! Maybe you are thankful for certain people, places, things, or activities. You can share your gratitude for our church, certain ministries, or places where you volunteer. Then, post it on the glass wall as a way to share gratitude and give thanks to God.  It is also a way for us to see what different people are thankful for in our faith community. Fill out as many as you want to!

All are welcome!  What is it, you ask?  Come to the Quadrooms or Fellowship Hall for conversation, camaraderie, and a place to work on your project of choice.

Fidget Mats Plus

Our fidgeters have been very busy and very productive!   There are several mats ready for delivery, hopefully before any more snow flies!   We call ahead to see if there is a need for our mats and that will take place the first full week in November.

Before we deliver to the community, please let us know if there is a need from our own congregation for these mats, for any reason, and please remember because of your generosity in giving fabric, doodads and gizmsos we are able to gift all mats, cuffs, kids’ books, aprons and Foley bag covers wherever there is a need.

Please join our group every Thursday @ 10am, we’d love to have you with us.   Come out of curiosity to see what we do!

Fellowship Hour

Join us for fellowship hour in the Fireside Room between services.  Please come to chat and have a cup of coffee or hot tea.

We need VOLUNTEERS to make, set up and clean up coffee.  A sign-up sheet is on the table in the Fireside Room.  If no one signs up, there will be no coffee made.  If you are interested in helping, but would like a quick tutorial, please see Kelly J.
