Are you in a Small Group?
Are you participating in activities as part of the Mom's Time Out or Club Mom crowd? Or are you in a small group that started decades ago and is still meeting, perhaps in a different format? Is your group made up of only folks from church or is it a mixture of current and former members?
If you are part of a small group that had its origins with First Pres, Faith Formation would like to know. And if you're open to new members, Faith Formation would like to know that too, as we look forward to the fall.
If you're part of a small group, could you please send a note to Rev. Nicole at (or call the office at 847-362-2174) so we have a sense of who is out there and meeting? Email or call if you have any questions. Thank you!
