Cookies, Coffee and Connecting
All are invited for a new fellowship time after worship. With the goal of building relationships, we will have the opportunity to discuss and learn more about each other. Each month, or bimonthly, we will have discussion topics placed on the tables, which will help open up with the connecting. Grab a coffee (or lemonade) and a bakery cookie and have fun!

  1. Mix it up. Sit in a different spot. Make sure to include visitors. 
  2. We will have special Sundays. (birthdays, breakfasts, potlucks, celebrating, etc). If you would like to host a Sunday for any reason, please contact Jill Macnamara, or that month’s Team Leader. You will be responsible for that Sunday. (set up, serve, & clean up)
  3. Homemade cookies are very welcome and will be put out before others. If you have extras, please bring and mark “Sunday fellowship”. 
  4. The team leaders will be asking you to help a Sunday or two. That includes making coffee, lemonade, and placing the cookies on trays. Clean up too.
