Small Group Activities
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Valley has a very active Prayer Shawl Ministry. Since April, 2005, Valley's Prayer Shawl ministry has "gifted" with prayer more than 800 hand knit or crocheted Prayer Shawls for encouragement to church members, friends in our community, and to friends in Arizona, California, Canada, Michigan, North Carolina, West Virginia, and Louisiana. The response from everyone has been heartwarming. The notes are very gratifying and a highlight of the monthly meetings. Two groups meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month, one at 1:00 p.m. in the Fireside Room and one at 7:00 p.m. at Marilyn Tuffs' home, call for directions. Marilyn Tuffs and Ruthann Marquis lead the knitters. New knitters are always welcome to join the group meetings. Suggestions for recipients and donations are always welcome too!
Holy Nine Patch Quilters
The Holy Nine Patch Quilters work several months each year to "surprise" our High School Graduates each May with a beautiful handmade quilt. The quilters work hard, but enjoy fellowship time as they make plans and tie the quilts together. Ruthann Marquis leads this group. If you are interested in joining this group, call the church office for more information. The group typically works January through May.
Tai Chi can help with physical fitness, stress reduction, meditation, and prayer. Tai Chi classes take place in Armitage Hall two times each week during the school year (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00-11:00 a.m.). During the summer months, Tai Chi meets only on Tuesday mornings, 10:00-11:00 a.m. For more information, please call the church office.
Friday Book Group
On the 4th Friday of each month, a group meets in the Fireside Room to discuss a book and share in fellowship. Remember to bring your own coffee October 24 at 10:00 a.m. in the Fireside Room. All are invited to come and share in what is always a lively discussion.
