Cottage Meetings

Cottage meetings are opportunities to meet as a small group in someone’s home.  The SPPRC would like to hold cottage meetings to get to know our new pastor.  We would like to hold these meetings during the month of October at a time mutually convenient for the host and pastor.  People were asked to sign up after church if they were willing to host.  Sign up sheets for these cottage meetings will be out soon.
