We enjoy a number of longstanding traditions that help to keep our community connected—and we are always open to starting new ones!
Friday Soup with Friends brings the older members of our congregation together several times a year for conversation and lunch. The group enjoys a half hour discussion led by our minister, followed by a lunch of soup, cheese, bread, and dessert cooked and served by a group of “kitchen elves.” The elves, who are younger adult volunteers, build connections while working and eating together in the kitchen. The older participants enjoy being served and connecting with one another in our Parish Hall.
Each December, we celebrate the Winter Solstice with food, song, and crafts. At this multi-generational gathering, we listen to stories about the ways in which different cultures have reckoned with the darkest days across the ages.
Twice a month on Sunday evenings, a group of congregation members come together for Crafts & Conversation. We work on individual crafts (knitting, rug hooking, quilting, weaving, mending, among others) and enjoy pleasant conversation. Experienced crafters often give pointers to those who are experimenting!
