The importance of fellowship to our church can be seen first-hand in the many scheduled and informal fellowship events our church. After every Worship service we gather in the Narthex for coffee and conversation.
Events throughout the church year are enjoyed by our congregation such as the Welcome Back! Cookout in September, the Annual Thanksgiving Luncheon in November and Christmas Caroling in December.
In February, a favorite tradition is the Annual Chili Cook-off where chefs vie for prizes in numerous chili categories. In June after a beautiful outdoor service, we wrap up the program year with the annual End-of-Year Cookout.
Throughout the year, members with similar interests enjoy being part of Circles or groups such as the Common Threads knitting group, the Backyard Gardeners group, Harmony Lites (a singing/ukulele group which serves as fellowship as much as music sharing for our youth!), Refugee Immigration Ministry, and Racial Justice Ministry. You might find us participating in Bible Study, a Youth outing to Drumlin Farms, going to Boda Borg for some shared fun, or preparing food in our church kitchen/serving food at Bread of Life in Malden.
Even in this time of Pandemic, we’re figuring out how to have fun together as well as minister to the needs of our community – even if the way we get together is a bit different (for example, spacing out in the narthex, meeting outdoors sometimes, or virtually; more phone calls are being made and cards are being written so we can all stay in touch with one another, across the generations).
We welcome your time, energy, interests, and talents and look forward to helping you plug into our community!
