Meals on Wheels

The purpose of Meals on Wheels is to provide meals for those families needing extra help due to illness, death in the family, adoption or childbirth. If you know of a need, please contact Kathy Haass, Alisha Bennett or the church office. More participants are needed.  If you would like to serve in this ministry please contact Kathy or Alisha to be added to the roster. Specific meal needs will be requested via TNT (This ‘n’ That), the church’s e-mail announcement system. To receive TNT e-mails, please contact the church office.  Thank you!

Tuesday Ladies’ Bible Study 9:30 am to noon in the WIC room

If you are interested in studying God’s Word with other women as well as fellowshipping and deepening friendships, praying with and for each other, please join us every Tuesday morning.  This fall we will study a new book by our own Bob Rogland, Galatians: Freedom in Christ.  “The Apostle Paul’s letter to the churches of Galatia presents the genuine gospel of Christ, a gospel the Galatians were in danger of abandoning for a false one.  Current research shows that well over half of Americans today have fallen into the same error as the Galatians.  Every Christian needs a solid understanding of the truth of the gospel as laid out in Galatians.  This study guide will help the Bible student better to understand and apply the truths of Galatians.” Babysitting is available.  If you need a book or have any questions, please see Dawn Darby.

Tea & Talk/Knitting Friendships – Thursdays 1:00 pm in the WIC Room

Thursdays, 1-3 pm in the WIC Room – Ladies, join us on Thursdays for knitting, crocheting, or any kind of handwork.  Or just come for fun and fellowship!  We are inviting women from the Better English on Sixth program as we build bridges and knit together friendships with women from our congregation, friends, neighbors, and the ESL program.  We hope you join us! For those needing a ride, for those willing to offer a ride, or for any other information please contact Janie Irwin. (Child care is unavailable at this time.)

Women’s Retreat – Oct 5-7, Seabrook, WA

In the fall, the ladies take a retreat for fellowship and spiritual reflection.  See Events for details.

Coffee Volunteers

Prepping the coffee/tea for fellowship is a simple, but important service to our congregation. Please consider taking part in this ministry — the more the merrier and the goal is to schedule you only once every 5-6 weeks. If you are able to help, please contact Terri Hurlbut and Margo Kelly.
