Circle of Sisters Book Club

We would like to invite you to a new way we are doing our Circle of Sisters Book Club beginning in January! We have decided to do a Zoom format for our meetings and we would like to meet once a week covering 2 chapters at a time. This does not mean you have to come every time and we want you to know that you may come through Zoom on video or without the video. We have had such a great time at our book club Zoom meetings during the pandemic and we have giggled and shared and we want to extend this chance for you to join us in a different way!

January Book

In January, we will be reading "How Happiness Happens" by Max Lucado. You are going to want to grab this book and read it! Come join us on January 27th at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom as Susan Knowles leads our discussion. For those of you who joined us in our book club last year you may remember our donkey book that Susan guided us through!

 

By doing this two chapters at a time we can remember what we have read, focus on the areas we want to chat about and also have some time to catch up with each other. Be prepared to laugh... actually be prepared for anything and everything! We will send out more information and the Zoom invite as the date gets closer. We already have a hand full of ladies coming! You can listen and participate however you like and as often as you like! Lets support one another during this challenging time. We need each other!

Blessing Bag Ministry

How many of you love blessings?  Well, during this pandemic a group of women have heard the call to Bless our congregation! We have packed pretty bags and delivered them to most of our church family and to interested families.  We have had so much fun delivering these safely. It's like the good old days of making a May Day basket and ringing a door and hiding! We usually don't hide but we stand back and have a lovely conversation. 

We are looking for a few more people who might feel called to this ministry! We are looking to deliver bags to the homebound next! How can you be a part? You may offer to write cards or make cookies or drop some goodies like chips, granola bars, candy, scripture cards, etc. off at the church. You may want to help deliver the bags or be a bag stuffer! You may have a creative idea for the team as to how this ministry  can best serve this church. Please pray and let us know if you would like to join us!
