September 16th: Women’s Spirituality Gathering
Due to air quality we are taking our brainstorming gathering from a in-person socially distanced gathering on the brick patio of the church to a Happy Hour gathering in the comfort of your own home at 7pm! Eat your dinner, rustle up your favorite beverage and gather with us online with your ideas and enthusiasm (or even just your hunger to fellowship with other people!). We will share some time together and come up with ideas for our calendar this year. Think outdoors, think service, think Zoom, think creatively. This is a year like none other! If you are interested in joining and need the Zoom link please email Sheila Harter, firstname.lastname@example.org
