"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you." Matthew 7:12The Men's Fellowship is a time when the men of the church come together to help hold each other accountable to the Word of God and commit to serving the Body of Christ with its time and talents.The Men's Fellowship meet the first Sunday mornings at 8:30 AM in the Fellowship Hall and the third Thursday of the month at 8:30 AM at Cloverdale Kitchen.The group also contributes its talents by taking care of the grounds of the church by mowing and lawn care. They also do various maintenance projects within the Church’s facilities and within the community.
Women of all ages have the chance to grow in community with other women of the church through the Women's Fellowship. Through spiritual growth, missions, prayer and fellowship, we create a place where women can be encouraged, share in Bible study and contribute to the community.The Women's Fellowship is divided into three Circles - small groups of women that meet the second Tuesday of each month.
Circle 3: 10:00 am, Church Parlor
Meetings include a variety of activities, such as trips to hospital waiting rooms, meetings held at local nursing homes, and other locations where service may be given.
Circle 4: 7:30 pm, Stelter Haus
Focus is on mission and charitable projects and support of our missionaries.
Circle 5: 5:30 pm, Stelter Haus
