Fellowship at Faith
On the fourth Wednesday of most months from September to June, the women of Faith meet at the church at 10:00 a.m. for Bible study, followed at 11:30 a.m. by lunch, fellowship, and a message from a guest speaker. Presbyterian Women (“PW”) are also involved with global and local mission projects, like World Vision and WEAVE. All women in the congregation are invited to attend. See the PresbyNews for the dates of the monthly meetings.
Life Groups are small groups of people committed to meeting regularly to grow together in their Christian faith. A typical Life Group meeting includes Bible study (based on that Sunday’s sermon), fellowship and prayer. Put simply, it is a time for friends to share their lives and support each other in applying God’s Word to their daily lives. Interested in joining a Life Group? Contact the church office at (916) 428-3439.
The Faith Crafters meet Mondays from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the church. They meet year-round (except on Monday holidays) and make craft items that are sold at an annual holiday craft sale, with all proceeds supporting local and global missions. Participants are also welcome to work on their own craft projects. If you are interested in learning how to knit or crochet, members of the group are happy to teach their skills. Come and enjoy the lively conversation and the warm fellowship.
Women’s Book Groups
Faith has two women’s book groups, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. Both groups meet in participants’ homes, and participants share in hosting, leading the discussion and providing snacks. The afternoon book group meets the third Monday of the month, August through June, at 1:00 p.m. The evening book group meets on the fourth Monday of the month, September through June, at 7:00 p.m. For more information about either book group, contact the church office, (916) 428-3439.
Supper Club is a great opportunity to enjoy a time of fellowship with people from Faith in a setting outside the church. One Sunday each month from March through June, rotating groups of about eight people get together for dinner at a group member’s home, with each person taking a turn over the four months at hosting and bringing a main dish, side dish and dessert. Sign up each February to be a part of the next Supper Club, and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to meet some members of the congregation that you don’t yet know and to deepen your friendships with some that you do know.
Fall All-Church Harvest Dinner
Each year in the early fall the Faith community gathers for an evening full of fun, food and fellowship. We host a big meal, often a barbecue with all the fixings. The activity that evening centers around a silent auction and various drawings, proceeds from which go to our Pat Tatro Memorial Campership Fund. This fund provides camperships for folks of all ages, as well as families, so they can participate in retreat and camp experiences without finances being a barrier.
