Coffee and Conversation

We are piloting a new effort this fall aimed at increasing fellowship opportunities for our older parishioners. We will gather on October 26 from 10:30 to 11:30 in Shears Hall for coffee, a short program, and conversation. We especially welcome those who cannot make it to church regularly, and will be matching those who need rides with those who can offer them. Please contact the Reverend Kristine Johnson if you are interested in attending, if you need a ride, if you can offer a ride, or if you can help with coffee and setup. We hope to see you there!
