Service to others and ways to meet our own and others needs are of vital importance to the group. Fellowship is still the force that keeps us all together and functioning even though our lives and needs are varied and busy.
On Mondays once a month at noon there is a lunch group available. The “Cozy Quilters” continue to meet on a regular basis. In the past there was a group available for preparing and serving group dinners. On the second Thursdays there is a breakfast group which meets at 9 a.m. We encourage anyone interested in any of the activities to participate with the group. We try to do some fun activities and some service activities.
Each year we sponsor a fund-raising event to raise money for an assortment of local and away service projects. We are willing to form other groups as interest and needs surface and are trying to reach out for new program ideas and aids. Hopefully these groups will grow as inactive members and new church members are drawn to fun and fellowship.
In the past our major fund-raiser has been the annual Cookie Sale which has grown better each year due to your participation. In 2015 the new group organizing the sale had multiple conflicts so we put together a pre-ordered only frosted sugar cookie sale. The stack of unfrosted cookies was daunting but with fantastic helpers we finished by 2:30. Also a group banded together to make their own Christmas morning quiches and gave a donation for each quiche. Some festive cookies were donated by some member bakers and tucked into the 47 completed boxes of cookies. Our limited sale raised $631 and that was used towards a college scholarship and some local mission projects.
