Dinner Groups: Several dinner groups are formed and meet a few times a year. Each group consists of 6 to 8 people, comprising both singles and couples. Each member takes a turn as host and provides the main dish. Other participants bring either an appetizer, a salad, or dessert It’s a great way to meet new folks and enjoy a delicious meal at each other’s house. Sign up sheets are in Foster Hall when new grousp are being formed.
Pastor’s Bible Study/Spiritual Growth: The Bible studies are usually in six-week sessions. Books of the Bible along with seasonal topics are explored. The time, location, and topics will appear on the church web page and Kirk News. In addition to the Pastor, Lay Leaders may lead group discussions. Most studies last about an hour.
Men’s Prayer Breakfast: This group of men meet on the 1st Saturday of each month
from 8:00 am to 9:15 am. A full breakfast is served. Different volunteers take turns making breakfast of pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, juice, coffee, and tea. Breakfast is followed by a devotional topic such as discussing heroes of the Bible for about 30 minutes.The meeting ends with a prayer for those people in need of God’s grace. Its a great time for Presbyterian men to get together, eat, enjoy fellowship, and learn.
Women’s Circles: Naomi and Lydia Circles nurture their faith thru prayer and Bible study, supporting the mission of the world-wide church and building a caring community of Presbyterian women. Naomi Circle meets the 4th Tuesday of each month at 10:00 am. The Lydia Circle meets the 4th Monday of each month at 4:00 pm. Both Circles meet at the church.
Movie Night: At 7:00 pm on the 3rd Friday of each month, free popcorn and beverages are available while we watch a movie that is recommended by the members of the Movie Night Group. We welcome members of the church, their relatives, and friends. The Kirk News will give specific information on the movie planned for the month. It’s a nice way to end the day.

Kayaking: During the late Spring adventurous members of the church get their kayaks out and get them wet. Each year they have 4 or 5 group meetings followed by a light meal. The Eastern shore is nice, but beautiful as viewed by the water. If you don’t have a kayak, don’t worry because some of the members have extras or you may rent one from some of the local shops. If you have shoulder or hand problems, there are kayaks you can peddle, just like a bike.
Excursions: Trips are planned by the Membership Committee throughout the year. Previous trip included Smith Island, Naval Academy concerts, and the Museum of the Bible. We’re always looking for interesting places to visit, so join our small group and bring your ideas.
Kim Cassady’s Adult Sunday School: The meetings take place on Sunday at 11:15 am following church services and fellowship. Run With Horses, A quest for life at It’s Best, by Rev. Eugene Peterson and Unexpected Answers to Life’s Biggest Questions, by Rev. Tim Keller and the CD “How Jesus Became God”, by Professor Bart Ehrman are being discussed. Prayer requests and special needs are a vital part of the Sunday School. Each session lasts about 45 minutes.
Fellowship & Craft Group: Started in 2016, with a group of women making Christmas tree ornaments. The focus then shifted away from decorating to knitting or crocheting prayer shawls. Call the church office for days and times.
Decorating Committee: All liturgical holidays need special decorating in the sanctuary (no experience needed, just helpful hands). This is mostly sanctuary decorating. Other events susch as ham and oyster dinners need decorating in Foster Hall. All of our concerts, funerals, and memorial gatherings need refreshments and helpers. Sign up in Foster Hall.
