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

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.


Fall 2017 Study Group ​- Under development!  If you'd like to be part of the discussion on what this group might be, please contact Pam Walker or Judi White.  Wednesday nights at 7pm are under consideration, with facilitation shared among those willing from within the group.  Nothing is carved in stone yet - be part of the planning and spiritual development!
