"Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another:
"What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . ."
– C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
Supper Groups are one of Cross of Grace’s most popular ministries. These groups consist of 8-10 adults who get together once every one or two months for an evening out or in someone’s home. Groups stay together for about a year, then new groups are formed. Some people have hosted a dinner or pitch-in at their home, others groups have gone to a play or movie, out to eat at a restaurant, or perhaps eat at a restaurant then back to someone’s house for dessert. The groups decide what they would like to do and how often to meet. With our growing congregation and multiple worship opportunities, these groups have been a good way for folks to get acquainted with other Partners in Mission. New groups are formed every September, with sign-up on the Welcome Table or at the Ministry Fair in August.
Over the summer Cross of Grace fields two softball teams (made up of partners in mission as well as friends we've recruited to improve our game!) to gather for fun and fellowship around the softball diamond. Our co-ed team plays on Sunday afternoons at the field next to the church. The men's team plays in the Heather Hills league. Contact Cross of Grace if you would like to play!
A monthly gathering for "crafty" folks on a Friday night. Bring your crafts and a snack to share. Join them this month!
