2009 Fellowship Team Report

1 John 3:18: “Let us not love each other with words alone, but also with our actions.”

Fellowship Ministry Team believes it’s important to welcome, affirm and support one another. During 2009 we planned lots of activities for fellowship, fun, food and friendships. We hope you had a chance to take part in these, or perhaps will join us in 2010. Here’s a trip down memory lane for 2009…

In addition to the monthly activities, Fellowship Ministry Team also took over hosting the Sunday morning Coffee Hours, thanks to the dedication and hard work of Lynda Nichols and Vi Patchen. (Note: If you enjoy the refreshments and conversation between church services, we would welcome your help on a Sunday morning in 2010. The signup sheet is on the bulletin board in Fellowship Hall.
