Learn a new craft or share your skills, including counted or printed cross-stitch, sewing, knitting, crocheting, knifty knitting – whatever you enjoy. Bring what you’re working on or pick up something new and come for good conversation and fun!

Alanon Meetings
Wednesdays, 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM, Church Library
Families, Friends, and Observers welcome; In person, District 03
Al-Anon Family Groups – People who were once lonely, lost, and helpless because of someone’s drinking, today have courage, confidence, and hope. They have discovered friends who understand, as few others can. They have found the tools to help themselves – which can indirectly help their alcoholic relatives or loved ones. Contentment and even happiness are possible whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Come and see.

We invite you to join us as we spread the love and knowledge of our Savior Jesus Christ through our world today.
