Hospitality: It’s History, Our Present
Starting January 13
Kate Meadows will lead in an 8-week study that examines hospitality, from its rich history to how it fits into today’s harried and guarded culture. We’ll use Christine Pohl’s Making Room: Recovering Hospitality as a Christian Tradition as the basis for our study and discussion.

They Are among Us
We're talking about individuals who care about others as Hebrews 13:3 says: "Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering." If you want to do more as a Christian caregiver, consider Stephen Ministry. A training class is starting on Sunday, January 6th. Contact Pastor Bill, Jane Cauchon, Judith Meyer, or Nanette Dost for more information

Women in Mission will not meet in January. Our next meeting will be February 7th.
