Evening Craft Connections
Wednesday, 7:00-9:00 pm
The evening craft connections’ meeting is very relaxed. Most of the participants work on their own craft projects; while others work on charity projects throughout the year. The evening provides an opportunity for learning from scratch and sharing techniques with others, or learning from each other as the time allows. The goal of the evening is to spend time together ‘crafting’ and so benefit from this therapy as the group members’ stitch and chat. Currently there are between 6-10 people and newcomers are always welcome.

There are a number of small groups. Groups of many specific and mixed age groups that meet at the homes of the participants on several different nights of the week. Groups study a wide range of topics related to the Bible. Contact the church for information or to join a group.

About 10 to 15 friends, in their 20’s to 70’s, and a number of leaders meet on Sunday afternoon twice a month at 2:30 p.m. for fellowship, singing, crafts and Bible stories. We share a meal with the congregation four times per season followed by a special church service that includes lively hymn singing and participation in a band. Other activities include a Friendship Festival twice a year, and game afternoons.
Every Three Weeks
The Fellowship Club is a Bible study group of about 12-15 people, couples and singles, that meet at various member’s homes.
