The Mah Jongg group meets on the LAST Saturday of each month from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm in the Church Library.  All levels are welcome, even those who have “never played” or even seen a set of Mah Jongg Chinese Tiles.  It’s a fun game, which can lead to new friendships, as well as energetic rivalries!   We’ll even teach you how to play!  The gatherings are free to attend, and include a light meal for lunch.  But you must RSVP, so that a place at the table can be reserved for you.  RSVP by sending your name, phone number, and email address to:  nancygillette@yahoo.com.


We meet once a month at 5:30 pm for dinner and fellowship.  Our purpose is to develop our relationships through a common spiritual foundation. We start with a short bible study (there is no homework!) and discussion and continue our fellowship with dinner.
