Are you up for sharing food and fellowship with new friends? Or how about breaking it down and building it up again in Fitness Boot Camp? Or maybe your thing is joining together with others to grow, learn, and serve others? Check out the following Community Groups. Let us know if you have an idea for a new group!

The Bridge is a small group made up of 40s & 50s +.
The focus of this group is Spiritual, Social, and Service.
Spiritual: Coffee, Grounds for Discussion is a member led Sunday morning study group. We meet on the lower level of the CE Wing during the Christian Education Calendar Year (in non-Covid times).
Social: Events include a Tour of Patios in the summer and an Annual Christmas Party.
Service: The group typically provides a Chili & Baked Potato Dinner for PADS around Valentine’s Day, and also does a Coats on Poles Project in December. This year (2021) The Bridge is sponsoring a church wide project to provide Mother’s Day Gift Bags for WINGS.
The Bridge Summer Tour of Patios is BACK!
Throughout the summer, The Bridge will gather on the patio of one of our members for fellowship. These evenings of fellowship will take place every two weeks starting on Friday, June 11, at 7:00 pm at the home of Kelly Dean. Plan to bring your own beverage and a small appetizer to share.
In addition, please RSVP to Kelly Dean with how many will be joining us and let us know how many have been vaccinated. While vaccination is not required to attend, it will help some guests determine whether or not they will. See you on the patio!

There are many pathways in life as we grow in relationships with each other and God. Pathways at First Presbyterian is a social and service group for both families and individuals. Most of us are in our late 20s and 30s, but all are welcome. Here is a sampling of our monthly activities: Summer BBQ, a day at the race track, fall chili night, Christmas party, making cards for hospitalized church members, potluck dinner, off-site volunteer events, dinner at a local restaurant, and taking part in the First Pres Service Day. Some events are for adults only and some include the kids.

All women of the church are members, and are welcome anytime. To join a circle, contact Gladys Holtz.
