ChOW is a intergenerational gathering time offered twice a year, in the fall and the early spring. It is a chance to enjoy a delicious meal together and participate in a variety of classes with an opportunity to grow in our faith and gain new friendships.
Some recent class offerings have been Four Marks of Christian Maturity, The Confident Woman, Lord Hear My Prayer, Moral Revolution, and Yoga.
Activities are also offered for children in elementary through high school, with nursery care available for those birth to preschool age.
If cooking is something you love to do, we welcome you to prepare a meal for one of the weeks we meet. Contact the church office (707-224-8693) for more info!
