High Spirits provides an opportunity for senior members, guests, and friends of the Church to get together for fun and fellowship.
Meetings are usually held once a month at 12:00 pm on the second Tuesday of each month from September to June.
There are a variety of programs, including pot luck luncheons at the Church, guest speakers, lunch at local restaurants, and visits to places of interest. Everyone is invited to participate.
The Fellowship Ministry seeks to have every person feel they belong, are included, supported, and are loved, not only in this Church, but in the Kingdom of God. Our programs are designed to welcome others by sharing the gifts of our time and fellowship in a variety of fun and healthy activities and social programs, and by supporting the activities and missions of other church ministries as well.
The Fellowship Ministry also facilitates familiarity of the church membership, visitors, and friends, and increases awareness of the roles the staff, leaders, and members play through announcements, photos, articles or spotlights on opportunities for fellowship.
A place for you to connect and reconnect the lines and dots between your life and your faith.
A place to begin and/or continue your spiritual journey.
A place to laugh with old and new friends.
A place to grow deeper in God’s word.
A place to know and be known.
