The Fellowship Ministry is about creating and sustaining social ties with those with whom we already share a common bond in worship. It is another way we come together regularly as a church family. We try to offer activities for specific groups as well as intergenerational, coed and families.

Fellowship activities are often combined with study and worship events such as Lenten programs and Ladies Advent Tea.

Other opportunities include:  

Knit with Prayer                                                     Chautaqua Getaway (January)

Card night                                                              Book Discussion

Men's softball                                                         Potluck suppers                                          Coffee hour between Sunday services                  Baking Cookies

Youth events                                                         YAC (Youth and Christ) High School age

                                                                              (refer to the youth page for more info). 



“Theo-Third Thursdays" will meet on March 15th at 9:30am.  Theo-Third Thursdays is a monthly fellowship breakfast that is open to everyone. Pastor Randy leads the group in various topics and discussions.  The meetings take place at Simon’s restaurant, 7770 Chippewa Road in Brecksville.

Hobby Nights

Start thinking about hobbies this winter!

Hobby Nights will resume after the first of the year. On designated weekends, we meet in the Fellowship Hall on Friday, 6:00 pm midnight, and again on Saturday, 10:00 am midnight.

You are welcome to join us for any or all of the time, and you can leave your space set-up if you are coming Friday night and returning Saturday.

There is a $5 (or more) donation that goes to YAC, no matter how long you stay. Lunch and dinner are on your own . . . You can bring a packed lunch or dinner, or we often order out.

Please bring a snack to share with all attending, and any beverages you’d like besides coffee and iced tea.

Any questions? Contact Jeanne Travaglianti.

It’s a great way to work on projects during the long winter months, and helps YAC with their Summer Mission trip expenses. All are welcome! Bring a friend or two! Hope you’ll join us for this fun time of fellowship. 

Next Hobby Nights will be:  February 23rd & 24th, March 9th & 10th.
