We learn more about one another during a single dinner conversation than we know after years of worshiping side by side in a pew! Table groups are our version of a "small group" where we form relationships of mutual support. We currently have 8 table groups, and each group has a host who coordinates the gathering time (quarterly, monthly, or seasonally as each group determines for themselves) and offers one thoughtful question to spark conversation. The rest of the growth happens naturally, as you begin to share more life with one another. While table groups function as a consistent gathering of 6-12 people, we know life is fluid. That's why people can join a table group at any point! You can also volunteer to host a table group, and we will coordinate the initial members and point of contact. It truly is a gift to be connected!
We are ALL smiles during coffee hour. This weekly gathering takes places immediately following worship in our newly renovated Bradford Hall (downstairs). Various groups and individuals are welcome to sign-up as hosts, providing coffee, a simple snack and clean-up. Families are welcome to host a coffee hour in honor of a milestone event. Birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, weddings, births, and retirement parties are a beautiful way to share joy among our church family. Sign-up to host a week using the button below! Two steps: 1. Check the “sign-up” box next to the date you’d like to host (on the right side of the schedule). 2. Be sure to click the “submit and sign-up” button at the bottom of the page before closing out.
We enjoy hosting several special events throughout the year.

Pierre and Oahe Days. We never pass up a new opportunity to enjoy one another's company and welcome in new friends!
Women's Fellowship & Riggs Guild
We have an active crew of women who host special luncheons, coordinate the kitchen supplies, organize our annual Christmas Cafe & Bake Shoppe, serve at funeral receptions, and tend to all things hospitality. We also have 2 guilds that meet monthly: Riggs Guild meets the 3rd Wednesday at 1:30pm for fellowship & bible study; Altar Guild meets the 1st Wednesday at 10am to beautify our worship space; Women's Fellowship Board meets the 2nd Thursday at 1:15pm to administer church-wide hospitality events and needs. They also offer "camperships" to students wishing to attend Placerville Camp during the summer. Join this robust and friendly crew of women by reaching out to the office with your interest.
