Fellowship Ministry

Faith & FellowshipFellowship and Small Groups

Fellowship activities and small groups connect you with others in the congregation. While some groups focus on a particular demographic, all activities are open to all people — members and visitors alike! Just watch the bulletin for upcoming events and sign up on your attendance sheet or in the narthex. For more info click on the group contact person listed below.

Book Clubs

book club fellowshipCome join us for fellowship as we discuss the latest reading and enjoy a nice meal. Discussions aren’t limited to book discussions so if you haven’t read the book, don’t let that stop you from dropping in and chatting. Join whenever you wish.

Craft Club

Anyone interested in some fellowship while working on a craft of their choice come join us the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Cross stitch, needlework, stained glass, knitting, scrapbooking, quilting, beading, and much more – these are a few of the crafts currently being worked on in Craft Club.

Our craft group meets regularly, allowing members to enjoy conversation, share ideas and work on your craft.  Members enjoy quilting, cross-stitch, crochet, or bring your own favorite craft to work on and share.  We are also working on a hand stitched kneeler to use during Advent and Lenten services.

Bring your current project or come learn something new with a fun group of people. Everyone is welcome.

Men’s Group

Lutheran Night at the Braves

Lutherans from throughout the Atlanta area and its surrounding attend a Gwinnett Braves game together in the summer of each year.

Men’s Softball Team

Every spring and summer the men participate in a Lutheran Softball League. Any able body is welcome. We play at Bethesda and everyone is welcome.  The league fee is around 650 $ a year and I ask for 40$/adult, kids are free since they are all poor!  Skill appreciated but not required.  We always do wings and beer after the game so this is as much social as it is athletic.

Contact Brett Swartz  if you are interested in playing.

Paint and Palette Club

Learn to advance your skills in drawing and painting. This group meets twice a month. Newcomers are welcome. If you have ever wondered if you have the ability to draw or paint, we encourage you to come find out!

artpaletteBobby Yeargin shares his artist talent and teaches techniques he’s learned over the years. Anyone with a desire to paint or draw whether you are a beginner or more advanced. Classes are usually on the second and third Saturdays. Please check the calendar to make sure we’re meeting.

The club meets from 9:00 am to noon. Feel free to join when you can and leave whenever you want.  There’s a sign outside the church that helps you find the class. Paper and pencil are enough to get you started. All beginner supplies will be provided (pencil, eraser and sketch paper). If you need some help with supplies, we’ll be glad to help.
