Small Groups

The Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets once a week on Tuesday afternoons from 1:00-3:00 PM in the Church Parlor. Members knit shawls and lap rugs that can be distributed by members and friends of the congregation to anyone who may need a sign of compassion and love in a difficult time. The handiwork of the knitters is blessed during worship. Each piece comes with a prayer attached. People of all knitting abilities are welcome, even beginners. There are enough experienced knitters to help teach the craft. If you are interested in Prayer Shawl Ministry, contact Carrie Penrose at 415-5513

The Men’s Breakfast Group
This group meets on the first Saturday of the month from 8:30 to 9:30 AM. Volunteers come early to prepare the breakfast, usually eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit and pastries. There is no set agenda and the conversations are open and free flowing. The point is to build relationships between the participants, some who are regulars and others who come as they can. A free will offering is taken to defray the cost of food. For more information, contact John Bischof at 781-2391.

The Women’s Breakfast Group

The Meditation Group
