FELLOWSHIP & PASTORAL CARE

Sophisticated Swing Concert Thanks to Carl Hamilton and his band as well as to all those who attended the concert Friday evening (April 15, 2016.) The music was great and the jokes a little corny but still funny. A good time had by all. Special thanks to Mary Willard and her team for putting this concert together.

A special thank you to Ron Reed and Lois Kirkpatrick both of whom are retiring from this committee after many years of service. Ron ran the Benevolent Fund for over 30 years.

In the words of an Agape member

A little bit of heaven came my way today,

A kindly smile from a friendly stranger

Welcomed me to stay.


Come join us at the table,

We'll soon be having tea,

A Cookie, too, sounds good to me,

Well, maybe we'll have two or three

Prayer Shawl Ministry

This a group of women that meet every second Wednesday afternoon from 2:00-3:30pm to knit the shawls. Anyone can join. It takes on average 20 hours to knit a shawl and they are given as gifts to anyone needing comfort (in hospital, illness, bereavement, moving, new job, new school etc) or celebration (wedding, baptism, graduation). Once the shawl is completed the group gathers to say a blessing over the shawl. This is the church's way of reaching out in love to those in need.
