Girl Scouts Meeting times are the first and third Tuesdays at 6:00pm to 7:30pm in the scout room in the church.
Guardian Angel Club This is open to all men and women of the church who are willing to serve as a secret and unknown friend to one selected person for a period of one year, doing acts of kindness and remembering them in prayers and on special days. The angel remains anonymous for one year, and then at a brunch or luncheon the name of the angel is revealed. At this luncheon new names are put into a box and each angel selects a new name for the next year. This luncheon is the only meeting of the group.

2nd Tuesday Group This is a noontime activity on the second Tuesday of the month. Everyone is welcome.There is no formal membership, just show up. Because of the time frame, almost all of the persons attending the meetings are retired or ones that usually have Tuesday noon time open. Volunteers cook and serve a light lunch. A donation of $5 per person is usually made to help pay for the food served. After the meal there is a short entertainment of various sorts. There is a different group of persons cooking and serving the meals almost every month.People are asked to sign up beforehand, so that the cooks know about how much food to prepare. There are no Summer meetings.

Lunch Bunch

The Lunch Bunch is a group of women  who get together once a month, the last Thursday, for lunch at a local restaurant. The objective is simply to enjoy the fellowship of the group and he joy of seeing each other. While we have sponsored some fund raising activities in the past, and will probably continue to do so, these are strictly voluntary side efforts and are not our main goal. All Ladies are welcom to join the simple gift of fellowship.
