Conversations & Calories

A special time to get to know some people you have not had time to chat with as well as having some munchies


Thanksgiving Dinner in the Chapel

Thursday, Nov. 24 @ 2 pm

Everyone is warmly invited to abandon all the preparations required in order to pull off a thanksgiving dinner by inviting your family and friends to come to the chapel for our All-Church Thanksgiving Dinner Potluck.

Imagine having to only prepare one dish (to feed oodles of people please), skip getting out the ‘good china’ and silver, avoid the last-minute vacuuming, setting the table and of course having to clean up afterwards! Make your thanksgiving dinner a truly thankful event without missing all the festivities, company, and good conversations.

You may join in by signing up on the Thanksgiving Dinner Signup Sheets posted on the foyer bulletin board or the one on the board outside the servery. Please indicate how many people will be in your party, and what your food contribution will be.

You may also sign up be sending an email to by including the same information.


Chair Yoga Class

meets on Tuesday mornings @ 10 in the Chapel. Open to all who wish to participate, especially newcomers.

New Name tags


We’ve used the same name tags for 25 years and the board decided it is time for a fresh look. The new tags are easier to read, have our own church logo and have a place to indicate your pronouns.

Tags are $9.00. You can get an order form here.
