Tuesdays, in Fellowship Hall, from 9:30 to 11:00.  Come for coffee, tea and treats and of course plenty of conversation and laughter.  Take a break from your morning routine, drop in, spend awhile, and catch up on the local news and share all the fun you had during the pandemic. The café will remain open throughout the summer.

 
Walking Group:  Tuesday morning walking group for ladies in the village.  Join us in the parking lot at 9:30 am and we can walk and chat through the village.


White Gift Sunday:  December 11th is White Gift Sunday. Due to overwhelming need, all of our White Gift donations and offerings will be going to our local Food Bank. Non-perishable food items are always welcome, and cash donations are greatly appreciated as the Food Bank uses them to make bulk purchases that make more food available to our local community. Thank you in advance for your generosity in this Christmas season. 

Envelopes are available at both entrances.
