Join with Others

All Saints has several active "meet friends for a meal" groups, which usually gather monthly or every other month at the home of a rotating host for a pot-luck dinner and fellowship. In addition, there are other groups that meet for exercise, discussion, or around a common avocation.  A brochure describing the opportunities for small-group participation is available.
