Faith in Action
Join our newly forming Sunday afternoon small group that will revolve around short-term studies on particular social topics based on the interests of the group. Audra Johnston will coordinate the group and lead the first study, Outrageous Justice, which examines our criminal justice system. With the debate in our county about a new jail, this study is needed to have a deeper understanding of issues very much alive in our current context. The interests of the group will determine successive studies. The group will meet from 4-5:00 p.m. in the Conference Room at the church Sundays starting October 2. Send an email to Audra at
if you are interested.
Women at the Table
Join in our newly forming small group for women to gather together once a week over lunch and share stories of faith and life. Vicki Vasser will facilitate this hybrid group, which will start Thursday, October 6, and meet from 11:45 to 1 p.m. in the Conference Room or over Zoom. The first study will be Messy People by Jennifer Cowart. You will watch a short video and discuss over brownbag lunch. If you are interested, contact Vicki at
. She will share Zoom links and information on accessing the study with those who contact her.
Love to walk the trails? Want to grow in relationship with Christ and others? Join Johnna Kosnoff, Jennifer Tilley, and Marcia Patterson at different trailheads on designated Tuesdays from 9-10. This group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. You will share in a brief devotional (10 minutes) led by Johnna and walk the trail for the other 45-50 minutes. Jennifer will also share some hints for catching beautiful nature photos along the way. To put your faith in action in this group, email Marcia at

Dorcas Sewing Ministry
This group was organized by Maxine Hines in 1993 to give layettes to our two local hospitals to share with Moms in need and their babies. We meet every month on the second Wednesday at 10 am. Wylene Cohagan gives us a piano recital every workday. In our existence, we have benefitted at least 1000+ babies.
All Men in our church are invited to our United Methodist Men Breakfast and devotional. Breakfast is on Tuesdays at 7 am in Hines Hall.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Our prayer shawl group meets on Fridays at 10:30 am. This group is for anyone who enjoys knitting, crocheting, or would like to learn. Whether they are called Prayer Shawls, Comfort Shawls, Peace Shawls, etc., the shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent. Some recipients have continued their kindness by making a shawl and passing it on to someone in need. Thus, the blessing ripples from person to person, with both the giver and receiver feeling the unconditional embrace of a sheltering, mothering God!
