Fellowship & Events

Our Deacon / Congregational Life committee is dedicated to providing fun and exciting social activities within the life of our church. Activities include movie and game nights, karaoke nights, trips to Angels games, regional day trips and so much more. They are supported by our long-term groups: Flagship, Windjammers and Women Connected, who together provide activities for all ages of adults. Contact the church office for more information.
