Fellowship Hour

The Fellowship Hour is a favorite tradition of our church during which the entire congregation meets and catches up over a cup of coffee and treats.

The church is asking for all of us to participate in this tradition by hosting a Fellowship Hour one Sunday of the year.  It is recommended that you share the responsibilities with other friends and family.  You will find the details on our website by clicking on the "Fellowship Hour" link or you may call the church office at (708) 562-2744.  The Sundays that are available are listed on the "sign up sheet" located on the wall by the kitchen door.

Thank you in advance for your participation!
