Pieceful Quilters meet on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 pm in the church Fellowship Hall. The group is open to anyone interested in quilting, from the very beginner to the advanced. We are working on our own project right now. We have Show and Tell each month of our projects that we have finished or are working on at home. For more info call Velma 309 788 - 4663 or Karin 309 786 - 4977.
The Joy Bunch is one of our most active groups in the church. The group is open to anyone who is available for a good time on the fourth Wednesday of the month, usually around noon, but the time varies. "Joy" originally meant "Just Older Youth," but now it's more than just retirees. Anyone is welcome. This group goes on fun, interesting and educational trips to sites in and near the Quad Cities. Recent trips included the Botanical Center and the Isabel Bloom Studios. They have also gone on Fall Foliage tours and usually have lunch together at a restaurant on the way.
Parties and Events
Our beautiful Parish House also serves as a place for parties and events for members and non-members alike. We enjoy sharing our historic treasure by making it available to the community. The Parish House was originally the home of Stuart and Grace (Velie) Harper. The building that now houses the church was once a carriage house. Stop in and see them both. If you would like to make a reservation for an event please contact the church office at 788-9661.
