MomLIFE…Living In Faith Everyday: for moms of every season of their life! We will read short devotionals/bible study books independently, meet to discussion and then have fun socializing. Activities for each gathering will be decided upon by the group and will change on a regular basis…we are open to any idea you may have! Can’t make it every time- that’s ok! We will be happy to see you when you are able to join us. We will meet once a month.

Also from the Women of the ELCA is  Cafe.

Café is an on-line magazine for young adult women. It incorporates a Lutheran perspective for women of Christian faith or simply for any woman who is interested in how faith relates to the issues that women face today.

Readers and writers of Café include pastors, seminary and college students, and other young adult women who use Café as a Bible study resource individually or with their congregation.


The quilters will meet the 1st and 3rd Thursday and the 3rd Friday every month at 9am.  Knowing how to sew is not a necessity of being part of this group.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Come together on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month to make these shawls.  Completed prayer shawls, infant blankets and quilts are blessed on the last week of each month during worship services.

  • Don’t know how to knit or crochet?  This is a great place to learn!!
  • Do you know of someone in need of a prayer shawl? Shawls are given to our own members and others in the community. Call the church office for more information.
