Is a group similar in a lot of ways to Weight Watchers and they meet weekly on Tuesday nights to support each other. They meet at 7:00 pm

Prayer Shawl Ministry
There is a large group of knitters from each church who make prayer shawls and a number of other items for the sick and young. Each item contains the prayers of the knitter and the shawls are dedicated in church where the congregation has the opportunity to add their prayers to the shawl. This ministry brings peace and comfort to a number of people. The group meets monthly on the first Tuesday of the month at 9:00 am in the Centennial Room. The group determines who is to receive shawls and those receiving shawls need not be members of the congregations.

There is always a speaker or some event and it is usually fairly well attended. All men are welcome and once a year at the May breakfast the ladies are invited to join the group.

Picnic Every year on the last Sunday of July the congregations gather at the shelter in Solina Park for an outdoor service which usually includes communion and the service is followed with a pot luck lunch. All are Welcome and the service starts at 10:00 am.

There are a number of other activities at the church but they do not occur at the same time every month so please look at the calendar of events to see when lunches and suppers and special entertainment is planned.
