-Giving a generous welcome for our guests and those who are new to us by providing support, being reliable, sensitive and kind.
Hospitality Ministry consists of several different types of gatherings such as Ladies Potluck Luncheon, Men's Breakfast, Movable Feast, and Secret Friends as well as several other events throughout the year. A list of events is in the back of this pamphlet and we are always looking for volunteers to help out in any way they can such as setting up to providing dishes to cooking. If you feel that you would like to contribute some time to such a rewarding ministry there are volunteer forms that you can fill out or just give me a call. This is a wonderful way of getting involved in the parish as well as having fellowship and meeting new people.
LADIES POTLUCK LUNCHEON
Contact: Parish Office
The Ladies Potluck Luncheon is on the first Saturday of each month at 11:30 am. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to share and to take a turn hosting the event (i.e., set up and clean up). We also have a guest speaker for each luncheon. All ladies are welcome.

This group meets the third Saturday morning of the month from 8:30 am until 10:30 am. The men take turns preparing the breakfast. This is a fellowship time for all men of the Parish.
SUNDAY COFFEE TIME
Contact: Angela Richardson
This ministry requires time on Sunday morning and any preparation time you need before hand. There is a sign up sheet on the board by the kitchen door. You may sign up for any number of times you would like, i.e. once a month, every other month or once a year.
This job requires you to set up for coffee before the service by getting the coffee brewing, setting coffee cups, cream and sugar on the trays and providing any sweets if you would like. After communion you will need to come out and set everything up in the hall area, make the tea and at the end clean up. There is always help around so you are not on your own.
After sign up for this group the couples are divided into groups of 8. The groups then decide amongst themselves how they are going to operate. Usually they alternate meeting for dinner in each others homes. This is a great way to meet new people and have a night out. Single people are welcome also. The groups change each year so you can meet more people.

The Secret Friends group begins and ends each year at an annual Christmas Party. Names are submitted and then names drawn for your secret friend. This name is known only to you and the coordinator. You are given information on your Secret Friend so that you know when anniversaries and birthdays are. During the year you leave gifts for your Secret Friend on the gift table at the south door and you will receive gifts from your secret friend also. These gifts are small tokens of friendship and should not be expensive. This is a fun way of letting someone know they are being thought of and prayed for during the year.
