Lutheran Chicks

Come join us for a morning moms' group on Friday mornings from 9-11am.  Free childcare is provided in the church nursery.  The Lutheran Chicks meet to support each other and discuss current parenting successes and challenges.  Parenting can be stressful at times and it helps to take a morning off to relax, drink a cup of coffee, and talk with good friends. For more information, contact Ingrid Frokjer.


Friday Morning Bible Study

Join us off-site every Friday morning from 10:30-12:00 at Steynberg Gallery on Monterey in SLO for good coffee, conversation, and in-depth studies of God's Word. This group is self-directed and includes participants from other churches in the area. Our topics range from Women of the Bible to Paul's letters to issues of faith and spirituality. We welcome anyone who wants to come, whether it be for one morning or every Friday morning!
