Interest Groups

Throughout the year, we sponsor special events, activities and programs designed to appeal to a broad range of interests. Adult religious education classes, discussion groups, musical presentations, holiday parties, and potluck suppers and picnics are some of the ways in which we come together as a community to learn, share and grow.

In addition, there are many groups and activities occurring on an ongoing basis. Contact information for the following groups is printed on the back of the Order of Service, or call our office.
