The Friendship Circle is a fellowship group within Gentle Shepherd Community Church. We meet about once a month for social events and/or fundraisers. We have BBQs, pot lucks, dinners, etc. and we hold a couple of fundraising events a year. One of our annual events is a Harvest Dinner held around Thanksgiving; we shop, cook and serve the meal as well as hold a dessert auction at that event. The funds raised are used for our Christmas Families project where we provide food and gifts to a small number of needy families. We respond to requests for help that come to us occasionally from the community. We also provide support for church projects.
Approximately 35-40 members attend events as and when it is convenient for them. We have a lot of fun together. The group provides a place to get to know each other better as well as a place for new members to get to know us. New members are always welcome.
