Small Groups - Fall 2016

Posted by Kris Litman-Koon on

Fall 2016 Small Groups

The Small Group Ministries Task Force is launching five new small groups this fall to give each of us a chance to grow through new experiences. Led by our fellow members, each group will meet monthly between now and Lent.

Read on for a brief description of each group, and sign up for the one you want. Don't fret if you want to do more than one since all the groups sound fun and interesting! These groups may be offered again in the future, but for now please select only one

These small groups are open to any confirmed member of the church. Thank you in advance for your participation, and a big "thank you" also to our gracious facilitators. Resources and materials for these new small groups were provided by a grant from the Good Shepherd Foundation.

Space is limited, and the sign-up deadline is Sunday, October 23. 

If you have questions, please contact your Small Group Ministry Task Force:
Amanda Snodgrass, chair
Janet Lockhart
Deborah Whitlow
Pastor Paul Wollner
Pastor Kris Litman-Koon

Posted by Kris Litman-Koon on

At the start of a new year, we often reflect on the year that has just flown past us, and we ponder what will transpire over the course of the next year. Some people make resolutions, some people are adamantly opposed to resolutions, and some people view the whole thing like it is like any other...
