Interest groups

Our annual interest groups are continuing in 2014-15 with great momentum!  If you are fairly new to the church or have decided to enhance your special interests, it’s not too late to join in the fun and get to know your fellow church members better.  Members and Visitors are encouraged to join at least one group.  It's a fun way to get to know other people in our church community! Please contact one of the individuals listed below if you would like to join a particular group.  If you have an idea for a new group, and would like to coordinate it, so much the better!  Thank you.
