It has been suggested that we have a Puzzle Table in the Fireside Room for those puzzle buffs that may want to fill in a few pieces with others. This puzzle can be worked on over time and, when done, replaced with a new one!
We received a large donation of fleece to make more hand tied blankets. We donated many to the Friendship Service Center last winter. During Coffee Hour, we will have a blanket out, in Fireside Room, for tying, to continue the mission this year.
FELLOWSHIP . . . Coffee Hour is offered weekly and is a great time to gather for conversation and fellowship. On the second Sunday of the month, it will be a special or themed event. We hope you can join us. The Hospitality Committee is in always in need of volunteers to help with Coffee Hour and special events. Please see Sara if you are interested in helping or have any questions. Please remember . . . “Many hands make light work. “~John Heywood
Now that we have Sunday School on the second and fourth Sundays of the month, we would like to have special treats on those days, when the kids are here for Coffee Hour. If anyone has ideas or would like to bring or bake something, please see Sarah Flythe.
