 Family Fellowship
Our family fellowship usually meets six or eight Sundays each year between 6 PM and 8 PM. We have a variety of interesting activities each year. Anyone may attend any of our meetings, even if you do not want to become a regular member.
 
Music
The congregation is blessed with a Chancel Choir led by Brenda Dinkla and accompanied by Margaret Batschelet or Diane Royer. The choir is open to youth and adults and usually meets at 7 PM on Wednesdays. The choir provides music for morning worship and for community events, such as the annual Christmas Program put on by the Guthrie Center Associations of Churches. We encourage anyone who enjoys singing to join us, whether a member of our church or not. You do not need to be able to read music, but you do need to promise to have fun.

The Chimes Choir is open to children, youth and adults and is led by Brenda Dinkla. New ringers are invited to join us.  You do not need to be able to read music, only to count. The practices are usually on Sundays after morning worship (only when needed). Like the Chancel Choir, the Chimes Choir provides music for morning worship and for community events, such as the annual Christmas Program put on by the Guthrie Center Associations of Churches.
An informal Praise Choir assists the congregation with praise music one Sunday a month.

Soloists, small group singers and various musicians occasionally provide special music for morning worship. Interested persons should contact Pastor Todd or Brenda Dinkla.

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN
PURPOSE:  Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves:

to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible Study,
to support the mission of the church world wide,
to work for justice and peace, and
to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (USA) and witnesses the promise of God's Kingdom.

This group of women includes all women in our church. You are invited to join us. Our meeting is the 1st Wednesday of the month at 12 Noon. Lunch is provided, followed by a Bible Study, Fellowship of the Least Coin, and business meeting.
 
An evening PW group has formed for those who cannot attend during the day. They meet on Thursday evening at 7 PM following the day meeting for a Bible Study.

PW is a vital part of our congregation:
 
  • Activities at the New Homestead Nursing Home; usually Bingo and snacks.
  • Meals on Wheels.
  • Serving special meals at church for a variety of functions.
  • Serving the Lion's Club meals during March, April, September, and October.
  • Sending sewing and supplies to needy areas of the world
  • Sending money to support the mission work of the Presbyterian Church worldwide.
  • Sending supplies and cash to Cross Ministries.
  • Hosting a Friendship Night in May for guests.
  • Helping our Youth Fellowship Group fund their Mission trip.
  • Providing flowers for the sanctuary at Easter and Christmas.
  • Keeping inventory of the kitchen and supplying necessary items.
