Fellowship Ministry seeks to involve and include all members of our church, reaching out to the community as well, whenever possible. We hope to provide opportunities for fellowship, relationship building and companionship and comfort through meals, shared activities and common interests and recreation. We are also willing to serve as a resource for other groups and individuals who are planning activities and programs.

Hanging of the Greens In late November, we decorate our church building for Christmas. This “Hanging of the Greens” event is a fun time for people of ALL ages. Lots of trees go up, greens are hung, and different decorations grace our building. Usually, the Saturday after New Years the process is reversed. We put away our decorations for another year.
