  • Fixin ‘n’ Fellowship Meets year ‘round every other Thursday morning at 9:00 am in room 105 with fellowship, then they tackle minor repairs needed throughout the church buildings.

  • Knit Wits Join others who enjoy crafting for instruction, fun, and fellowship. Meets on Monday nights at 7:00 pm.
  • Moms’ Group This is a wonderful opportunity for moms of young children to meet and support each other. Kids and dads are welcome too! Click here to see when our next event is.
  • Scrapbooking Workshops are held monthly; dates are announced in the Weekly Pulse and Sunday bulletin. We have appetizers and beverages while we “scrap to our hearts’ content.” It’s a great way to get some projects done and be in fellowship at the same time. Glean ideas from each other and share supplies. Have a work space table all to yourself. Great place for scrapbook wannabes! If you’re not a “scrapper,” you can enjoy other paper crafts like card making or quilling. We’d love to have you join us!
  • Second Sunday Lunch Bunch meets the 2nd Sunday of each month after worship for a meal and fellowship. 
  • Softball Play softball in the church co-ed or men's league. Sign-up takes place each spring.
