Winter Lunches

You are invited to lunch!  Every Friday during the winter, everyone is invited to pack a lunch and come to church to share conversation, fellowship, and laughter.  There is no program and no agenda – just a chance to get out of the house and share a meal together.  Come every Friday or whenever you can.  We will meet from noon – 1:00 pm.  Cider and hot water for tea will be provided. 

If you know someone who could benefit from getting out of the house or having the chance to visit with others, offer them a ride and join us for an hour of fellowship.  Parents/grandparents with little ones?  Please stop by! 

Real people, real conversation – better than sitting in front of the TV or computer any day!  Come on your own or bring a friend.  Let’s have lunch!!

Our Tai Chi group meets every Tuesday and Thursday at 9:00 am.  Join us at any time – no experience necessary.  All are welcome!
