We gather in groups, called Circles, that meet together monthly for fellowship and study. We currently have two circles you are welcome to join: Martha Circle meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 12:30 pm; Sarah Circle meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 9:30 am. Our circles combine in July and August for lunch and Bible Study. See calendar for dates.
Our Quilters meet on the first, third, fourth and fifth Tuesday of the month at 8:30 to noon from January through October. Quilting is sustained by selling them at our Bazaar on the first Saturday of November. The beautiful quilts adorn our pews for Thankoffering Worship in November.
Our high school graduates each receive a quilt and new born babies receive a flannel receiving blanket. In addition, each family member moving into a Habitat for Humanity home receives a quilt. Quilts are also donated to Dunn House, Children’s Services, Gospel Mission, Salvation Army, Maslow Project, CASA, and Northwest Seasonal Workers.
