Books Between Bites is an informal group that gets together once a month to listen to a book review while enjoying lunch. We meet the 2nd Thursday of each month. Reservations are required, so please contact the church office to make your reservation. Cost of the lunch is $5.00 and includes soup & sandwich. You are more than welcome to join us even if you choose not to have lunch.
Our next book meeting will be May 9th at 12:00 pm and we will meet in the church library. Soup and sandwiches will be available. When making your reservation please let the office know of any special dietary needs.
Pastor Jenny will review the book “Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life” by Thich Nhat Hanh. “In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. Spiritual leaders and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the very situations that usually pressure and antagonize us.”
Please RSVP to the church office by Wednesday, May 8th. Hope to see you there! If you have any questions please contact Lisa Wink.
Our knit and crochet group creates prayer shawls, baptismal shawls, confirmation shawls, caps and lap robes. They provide a significant ministry of comfort and support. This year at our Prayer Shawl dedication we had 40 prayer shawls, knit caps, and baptismal shawls blessed. If you, or someone you know, would like a prayer shawl please have them contact Lisa Wink and we will make sure they receive one.
Would you like to be a part of the creation of these garments? We meet every 2nd and 4th Monday at the Wesley House. The 2nd of the month is a more informal meeting with fellowship and a time to help one another with projects. The 4th Monday of the month we share in a devotional, prayers and fellowship.
Please consider participating in this worthy mission. If you wish to discuss this further, please contact Lisa Wink (firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-880-2594) or Sandi Gordon (608.212.6597 or cgor-don1108@yahoo.
