Growing in faith and love through worship, discipleship, and service.
Salt Shakers is a group of people who come together for fellowship and the sharing of good food. It is open to all, couples and singles and we would love to add new Salt Shaker members. You are invited to join! Come spend time together over a nice home-cooked meal and get to know others in our church in a relaxed, friendly home environment.
So, what is Salt Shakers and how does it work? It is a group of FUMC members who meet in assigned homes monthly from September to May for a covered dish social. The host provides the meat dish and beverage and assigns other dishes to the guests. We meet at 6 p.m. on the second Sunday evening of each month. We have a Christmas Party in December and a picnic in June
Monthly attendance is not required but you must share hosting responsibilities. Couples or pairing individuals host twice a year and express their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices for each semester. Individuals host once and make their selections from either semester. Hosting assignments are based on these requests. Members determine how many guests they can accommodate. They plan the menu and provide the meat and beverage.
Individual Salt Shaker members can choose to host a Christmas Open House or a Summer Picnic for the entire group instead of hosting a regular dinner. The place, date and time of these special events is determined by the host. An effort is made to "mix" the participants so that they have an opportunity to dine with all other members.
