Tuesday Prayer Group

This prayer group is open to ALL! Mason Buckingham leads a prayer group which meets weekly, every Tuesday at 12:15pm in Narthex (the hallway next to the Sanctuary). 
The purpose of this group is to gather at the church to lift the needs and concerns that people have. We invite you to come and fellowship with us. When we gather, we certainly pray for each other and the needs within our church family, but we also pray for those who have experienced disasters, conflicts around the world, and for leaders within the church and in our world. 
Respect for each other is a core understanding with-in the group.

We do not require that any person within the group must pray aloud. Their presence among us is enough to encourage us in an attitude of prayer. It is open to all who wish to attend. Join Mason and others Wednesdays - an exciting opportunity to serve Christ and your church family!

The Diner's Club

This group is arranged with three to four couples or families paired for 4 months, enjoying monthly dinner and fellowship, rotating to each of the families’ homes (or location of your choice.) At the end of the four months, you would be shifted to a new set of three or four families. Families that wish to include children for bonding with other church families with children will be paired. 
Couples, singles, all adults will be grouped together. Members can request the family group, the all-adults’ group or either group.
The Diner’s Club is an opportunity to meet in the comfort of homes, break bread together, enjoy the fellowship of other Christians. Getting to know acquaintances better, meeting new friends, learning about their families and their lives offers the opportunity to make and enrich life-long friendships. 
Each group of families will decide their calendar and dining locations.
