CONNECT & REFLECT COFFEE HOUR
(2nd Offering)
This Sunday, October 18th
11:15 AM - 12:00 PM  

Well, last Sunday’s coffee hour was fun!  Some sentiments from people who attended: "It was coffee hour with a purpose - meet, greet, share, and reflect;." "It was uplifting." "During the breakout groups, I could catch up with two persons I don’t normally stay in touch with." "I enjoyed hearing reactions to our common experience of the service." Please join us in a virtual “Connect and Reflect” coffee hour returns on Sunday, October 18, 11:15 am – 12:00 pm.  (Note earlier time!) In small groups, we’ll have time to socialize and catch up with each other and also to share what was meaningful or thought-provoking about the 10 am service.  This could be something in the music, the readings, the liturgy, or the sermon.  Take a moment for yourself.  Questions? Contact Jane Alperson at janea1212@gmail.com.
