Fall/Winter Coffee Hour

As a community committed to being a place of Holy Welcome we believe getting to know one another is sacred work and we do this each Sunday morning at Coffee Hour. In order to continue this sacred work we need volunteers to host Coffee Hour following the 10:00 am service. Making coffee and providing a few treats (optional) is all that is required. Mentors are available to assist! Fall/winter sign up sheet available in kitchen or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
