Fellowship Breakfasts

Updated 5 November, 2018

WHAT IS THIS?
An informal gathering of men, women and couples from the congregation meet monthly, the fourth Sunday morning of each month, at 8:00 a.m. for breakfast, fellowship and an informative program. Many of the speakers are members of our congregation, meeting the dual objectives of interesting programs and getting to know fellow members.

All associated with our congregation and their guests are invited to attend; no reservation is necessary. We guarantee a friendly welcome, a good breakfast and a good time.

Cost is $3; kids under 12 are free. RSVP Craig Pettis: email or 613-634-0741 if you are plan to attend.
