Fellowship

Join us in Fellowship…

As Paul wrote in Ephesians, we have received gifts “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God.”  When coming to our church, we hope you experience a sense of our joy and hope that will make this your church, a central part of your life.  Do join us for fellowship with coffee/treats before each service.

Spiritual Friendship

Pastor Ron Hunt (psychologist and spiritual director) will be hosting a weekly gathering on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m.

“Spiritual Friendship” is for anyone who wishes to share their spirituality with other Christians in a confidential setting. The time is designed to help with devotional life and living out the Spirit’s call for our lives.
This month’s meetings are Feb. 7th and 21st in Casa Grande and 14th and 28th in Arizona City.

 

Some of our FUN fellowship social events:

 Book Club

“A Shepherd’s Look at Psalm 23” discussion will begin on Monday, January 8th at 9am in Casa Grande.  Last year we read:  The Homeless Donkey Who Taught Me about Life Faith and Second Chances by Rachel Anne Ridge; Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver

 

Co-Ed Softball

The Saints have been participating in the Casa Grande Parks and Recreation’s Monday evening co-ed league for several years. Women and men in their 20’s through 50’s have joined to provide spirited play.

Your “Saints” will return to action for the upcoming season beginning on February 26th.
Special thanks to the many fans who have come out to support our team.
Games are played at the Paul Mason Sportsplex on Pinal Ave. in Casa Grande.

 Dances

Themed events are held during the year with live music being performed. Fun and food are enjoyed.  Valentine’s Dance – Saturday, February 17th 6 p.m. – Arizona City

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate romance and love. The origins of the festival of candy and cupid are a bit muddled. In the 5th century, Pope Gelasius abolished a pagan fertility ritual held in February and proclaimed the 14th Saint Valentine’s Day, establishing it as a feast day on the Catholic Calendar of Saints.

The most popular story of the saint is that of a priest from Rome in the 3rd century. He secretly performed Christian weddings at a time Emperor Claudius II had banned marriage because he thought married men made for bad soldiers.

In the Middle Ages, the poet Chaucer was the first to link St. Valentine with romantic love.

No matter the origin, come listen to live music, dance, visit, and enjoy snacks and refreshments.

Game Night

Movies

The showing of entertaining movies bring our members and friends together for discussion and reflection.  The last movie was “The Shack” – enjoyed fresh popped popcorn, snacks and a good movie!

 

Quilting

Watch the calendar for the dates during the winter.  All women of the congregation, friends, and neighbors are invited to join in the quilting program. The women make a contribution of more than 100 quilts to our community every year. Their ministry is to share care and comfort through the gift of quilts.  The women of the congregation gather the first and third Wednesday of each month at the AZ City site Fellowship Hall (November – April) starting 9:30 a.m. (bring your lunch).
