Congregational Life


The mission of the Congregational Life Ministry is to offer programs and events that nurture and strengthen our faith community. The committee promotes and encourages Christian fellowship while attending to the well-being and unification of the congregation. We do this by planning programs and events, frequently in collaboration with other ministries, such as  

  • A Prayer Ministry luncheon, 5th Sunday luncheons and other special meals
  • Annual All Church Family Retreat at Mo Ranch
  • Fellowship groups including Steady Aims, Lunch Bunch and Party of Grace
  • Adult Olympics intergenerational fellowship night, annual Chili Cook-off, and biennial Christmas party
  • Bingo nights!

2021 All-Church Retreat at Mo Ranch.

Bingo night was held January 29, 2022. With Charlie Sapp as caller and Sally West as his assistant, great fellowship, prizes and treats were enjoyed. Many thanks to the awesome Congregational Life ministry team that put this together – Chris Snyder, Elizabeth Smith, Becky Collie, and Sally West.


Every other year, Congregational Care Ministry collaborates with the CGs to host an all-church Christmas Party. This is a fun evening with great food and entertainment. 
Due to COVID-19, a chili cookoff hasn’t been held at the church since the fall of 2019. But the youth are resurrecting the tradition by hosting one in February 2022, as part of their Souper Bowl of Caring food drive. 

The church looks forward to this all year!

This little one really liked her first taste of Cincinnati Chili at the 2019 cookoff.
