The Worship Ministry is responsible for various facets of our actual worship schedule and service. This ministry coordinates the musicians, acolytes and ushers for each worship service, and also coordinates service times and elements, such as Unity Services, Holy Week Services, sanctuary decoration and more.
In the spring and fall the Men’s Ministry holds a furniture drive to benefit the Interfaith Housing Development Corporation. At the same time they collect clothing that is donated to the Trenton Rescue Mission. They have monthly Saturday breakfast gatherings. The men of this ministry hope you will join them on a journey of brotherhood and service.
The Out to Lunch Bunch gather one Wednesday a month for lunch at a local restaurant. Not only do these women keep up on the latest dining spots in our area, but they also build supportive relationships that sustain their spirits.
Women’s Dine Out is similar to the Out to Lunch Bunch. Every 4 to 6 weeks, this group gathers for dinner at a different local restaurant for fellowship and food. They vary the night of the week and cuisine to encourage wider participation.
All women are invited and welcome to participate in our activities. We hope to meet you soon.
The Hospitality Ministry provides fellowship opportunities for the congregation throughout the year. Some of the highlights include the Annual Advent Dinner during the holiday season; providing meals during major churchwide events; and other special occasions as they arise. A sub-commitee of the Hospitality Ministry is the Events Committee. This group’s goal is to be innovative and bring new activities to the Church.
Knit and Crochet Group
Cindy Sundstrom is the coordinator for the Knit and Crochet Group, which meets for work on projects and fellowship. The members make a variety of items, which are given to needy people in the hopes of giving them warmth and lifting their spirits. Among the projects they undertake are prayer shawls, lap robes, chemo hats, adult afghans, and blankets for premature and newborn infants. Knit and Crochet donates their newly finished items 3 times a year to variety of recipients, including several hospitals and cancer centers, the Red Cross Shelter, the Bucks County Housing Group and a Bereavement Counseling Group for parents whose newborn has recently died. Members of the group are happy to teach their skills to women who are new to knitting or crocheting. Contact the Church Office for more information.
It is a great time to learn a new skill. Would you like to learn to knit, or crochet, or to brush up on your skills and learn something new? We learn a lot from one another and have a good time while doing it. Please join us.We meet at church in Rooms A1 and A2 on Fridays.
