7:15 AM to 8:30 AM
Everyone is most welcome! The Meditation Group meets twice weekly: at 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday mornings and at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday evenings. Basic guidelines are offered to all newcomers, and guided mediation is offered during some of the sessions.

Each session includes silent sitting mediation, walking mediation, and dharma sharing, in which folks may share their meditation experiences. On most second Wednesdays, our coordinator offers guided meditation with the body, from 5:00 to 5:30 pm. Attendance is free but donations are gratefully accepted.

For more information please contact Pamala Lewis: or Jean Jerbert:


5:30 PM
Craft Circle
7:00 PM
We are an inclusive social group of adults interested in crafts. We gather with each other on Wednesday evenings to work on our own current personal projects. Whatever the skill: knit, crochet, needlepoint, zentangle, sewing, quilting, beadwork, cross-stitch, scrapbooking, we are willing to teach what we know to others.

Childcare is not provided. Come and be with us as your schedule permits: once a week or once a month, whatever works for you.
