Our Fellowship Ministry is one of building and maintaining relationships; of making sure that others are welcomed and loved at our table. Our ministry is carried out through acts of compassion like phone calls, deliveries, food, handmade crafts, and personal visits.
Our beloved Quilters meet every Tuesday, except for holidays, in the fellowship hall. Their crafts are sold multiple times a year to raise money for charity, scholarships, and transit tickets that help folks get to church. They'll usually bring snacks and make a pot of coffee, and crafters of any kind are welcome to bring their crafts along and join them. New folks of all ages, talents, and crafty interests are welcome to stop by from 9am-noon!
We feel it's important for others to feel loved and appreciated on their birthdays! If you would like to receive a card on your birthday, please call the office at (530) 895-3754 and let us know when it is. Conversely, let us know if you're somebody who wants to make out and send cards!
Around the time the pandemic started to affect worship, we realized how important human interaction was. Masked and social-distanced, we started delivering CDs of the sermon to folks who, because of the dangers of COVID, could not attend church. Eventually we started delivering other things like flowers, cards, snacks, even groceries! This act of ministry is one of our strongest and most crucial now. If you need help gathering your groceries, would like to receive a CD of our weekly sermon, or would like to be a courier to help deliver items, please give our office a call.
Coffee Hour. Due to the pandemic, we are on a food-and-drink hiatus to maintain safe, social distancing. Coffee Hour is virtual and takes place directly after worship each Sunday. You're welcome to stick around, caffeinate, and converse. JOIN COFFEE HOUR (PASSCODE 667)
Meal Trains. Meal Trains are created when one of our members are ill and need assistance with dinners. Members of Faith order out or home-cook meals for the duration of the Meal Train.
Bake Sales. Bake Sales take place multiple times a year and are usually put on by the Women's Ministry to raise money for scholarships, and paratransit tickets that help members get to church.
Our Women's Ministry is a friendly and creative ministry. The Mary & Martha Bible Study Group and Quilters both come from the Women's Ministry, the latter of which is responsible for making hand-crafted masks throughout the pandemic, and creating stunning quilts. Each year the Women's Ministry hosts boutiques, and the money accrued funds scholarships for students and buys paratransit tickets to help folks get to church. The Men's Ministry is one that delights in fellowship and good food, and meets on Friday mornings for breakfast. And Alphabet Soup, our queer group, meets about once a month for food, fellowship, and games.
