In the late 1800's millions of immigrants began arriving in New York City by steamship. Many of these newcomers had no money and no family as they stepped of the boat. Fortunately, Alma Matthews and members of the Women's Home Missionary Society were there to greet young women and guide them to safety. Alma Matthews spent 40 years meeting boats and making sure these new Americans had clothing, a meal, and a bed to sleep in. Learn more about this Methodist woman who followed her faith and changed history.

Small Group Study Groups
New! Fall 2017 Wednesday Study Group - Under development A new small group has just begun. It meets every Wednesday from 7 to 8 pm in the church parlour/conference room. This is proving to be one flexible group - be present to be part of planning and participating in this group's spiritual development. All are welcome, regardless of church affiliation. For September 27, bring an article or a book you'd like to share and discuss.
The Thursday Evening Women's Spiritual Formation Group meets in the church's parlour/conference room. See Linda Stibal for the current book under study. As a covenant group, this group has reached maximum size and is closed. If interested in beginning a new group, please see Pam Walker - it would be wonderful to have another small group of intentional study!
Men's Study Group- This group has finished one study based on Companions in Christ, and has begun a new study based upon "A Disciple's Path". This group meets in the home of Brian Ebbers. Check with Brian Ebbers or Mike Gearhart to meet with this group.
