Church Coffee Hour
Please come down after Services and join us for coffee, tea and refreshments. This is an important time to meet new people and socialize with others. This activity has been a successful practice of this parish for more than a half century. It helped to bring people regularly to the church because they felt welcomed.
Volunteers are needed to host a coffee hour every Sunday. If we don’t have anyone to be a host for the Sunday, there obviously will be no coffee hour. A signup sheet is available downstairs by the kitchen or leave your name at the desk. Dates that volunteers are needed for Sundays are listed in the bulletin every week.
Many times people host coffee hours to celebrate a birthday, remember a family member on the anniversary of their passing away, or a number of other reasons to share their celebration or remembrance on that Sunday. The proceeds from the coffee hour help our Church financially. Also it will give us a chance to enjoy some refreshments and socialize with others.
