ADULT ACTIVITIES
Quilting MENNONITE WOMEN

Our group meets once a month for quilting and craft making. We organize the "kitchen circles" for carry-in dinners and lunches, and for meals after funerals. Our regular meeting is the first Thursday of each month. All women who attend First Mennonite Church are welcome. We have a time of sharing, discussing and learning how we can be in a closer relationship with God. When we are close to God, everything else falls into place.

SMALL GROUPS

From time to time, small group discussion sessions are held. These may occur on Sunday mornings, or on a weekday night, sometimes at the home of a member.

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL

Meeting in the church parlor, we usually follow the uniform lessons with a Mennonite-produced curriculum. Special issues are also addressed, such as a group study of a relevant topic or book.

CasseroleWEEKLY FELLOWSHIP MEAL

Wednesday 6:00pm you are invited to a Fellowship Meal in the Gathering Space (rear of the sanctuary). Bring a potluck dish to share as we become better acquainted in a casual setting. Come whether or not you bring food, always more than enough! Bring a friend! (Family activity)

MUSIC in WORSHIP

ADULT CHOIR. As of Jan 2008, our Adult Classical Choir is on hiatus, following retirement of the Director. For those for whom music is an important part of worship, both as makers and as listeners, there are other opportunities.

SOLOISTS AND GROUPS. We are blessed to have many people with musical talent who volunteer to provide special music, both instrumental and vocal.

MUSICAL ACCOMPANIMENT. Both piano and a fine Moeller pipe organ are used for congregational singing, offertory, prelude and postlude. Following Mennonite tradition, we sometimes sing four-part acapella hymns. Four part singing is encouraged, though certainly not required!

Pancake flipper RELIEF SALE PANCAKE BREAKFAST

The Mennonite Central Committee has an annual "relief" sale in Kidron, Ohio, always on the first weekend in August. First Mennonite is no longer responsible for the pancake and sausage breakfast at 6:30-10:30 that feeds about 1000 hungry people. We enjoy attending and enjoy the fellowship and the realization that we are giving significant help to a good cause.
