"We are a community of Faith dedicated to loving God and our neighbor as ourselves through worship, prayer, and service, and sharing God's peace with those who are far off and those who are near." 

Women of our church meet once a month on the third Saturday at 1 pm. They knit and crochet a variety of items, beside prayer shawls. Anyone is welcome to join them for an afternoon of fellowship, prayer and work.

There are prayer shawls available to be taken to anyone in the hospital or confined to home or simply in need of a reminder that God’s love surrounds and enfolds them like a shawl.

If you know someone who would like or need a prayer shawl, please contact Peg Phillips at 755-5396. Leave a message if no one is home.
