Sunday Coffee Hour

Coffee hour is a time for fellowship immediately following the Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings. It provides an opportunity to offer hospitality, build community, welcome visitors, nourish our bodies after fasting as well as get to know church members better

If you cannot assist your group on your assigned week, please let your leader know so that they can make the necessary adjustments. If your assigned week creates a conflict with your schedule, please contact the Coffee Hour Ministry Leader.


Ministry Team Leader: Sarah Steiger
