All of us are given the opportunity to participate in the life of our church by taking care of a coffee hour. Four families each week will be teamed together to produce the weekly fellowship we enjoy following the Sunday Divine Liturgy. Host families are provided a list of suggested refreshments to make their preparations easier.
