Our lay-led Bible study starts with a simple breakfast and then moves onto discussion and conversation. We wrap up before 8am so that people can get to school and work on time.
Our book group focuses on novels and memoirs that spark conversation about important social and religious issues. You don’t need to have read the whole book to join us for discussion; the book is just a jumping-off point.
Book group is on hiatus for the summer!
Past books include American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins, Melissa by Alex Gino, May Cause Love by Kassi Underwood, Pharmacy Girl by Kate Szegda, Heartland by Sarah Smarsh, Small Gods by Terry Pratchett, You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey by Amber Ruffin and Lacey Lamar, This Body I Wore by Diana Goetsch, Wholehearted Faith by Rachel Held Evans, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Be the Brave One by Ann Kansfield, and Blessed Are the Crazy by Sarah Griffith Lund.
Care Package Delivery
We delivery care packages to our members-at-home and others in the community roughly once a month. Packages have included soup, bread, cookies, and other treats; and we are always looking for new ideas for packages! The folks who make the deliveries also stop for a few minutes to chat with the people who receive the packages.
If you know someone who could use a care package, or if you would like to hep with delivery, please contact the church office.
We practice infant baptism, when parents and other family members make promises to raise the child in the Christian faith. Confirmation is the rite when that child, now a young adult, may affirm that baptism for themselves and join our congregation as members. It is also the process that those young adults go through to prepare for that rite.
Confirmation is different every year as we tailor things for the youth who are involved, but those youth always take a class, participate in church life, explore their faith with their families, and more.
The Crafty Stitchers make quilts, lap robes, and other items for people in our community. They regularly deliver materials to the Victory Center Rescue Mission in Clinton. They have also made shorts for the boys at Sunbeam Children’s Home in Jamaica.
Sunday School for youth, four years old through seventh grade, meets in six-week blocks, one block during the fall and the other during the spring, during worship. We use curricula from Illustrated Ministry, which creates thoughtful and easy-to-use materials designed to foster authentic faith engagement with refreshing designs and creative activities.
Fall 2023 Sunday School runs from September 24 through October 29 during worship.
