Newcomers Lunches

We are blessed to be graced by many visitors and newcomers to our church community. For our newcomers we offer special monthly gatherings in the Hastings Room. Fill a plate with lunch from the social hour held in Margaret Jewett Hall after Sunday morning service and meet us in the Hastings Room. Each Newcomer Lunch has a topical focus. These gatherings allow newcomers to get to know one another and to enter into engaging dialogue around topics ranging from our faith journeys to basic tenets of the Christian journey. Current members are also encouraged to attend to get to know people and share in the dialogue.

Please check the calendar for the next Newcomers Lunch. We hope to see you there.
