Small Groups


Bible Study

Building Disciples
No experience necessary, come as you are.

Our Bible Study small group is continuing its study of the Gospel of Mark. The meetings are held on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. in the choir room. Consider joining this group to deepen your faith in fellowship with fellow members. All are welcome.

Lunch Bunch

The group meets in fellowship once a month to sample lunch at various local restaurants. On October 24th, we met at Alfredo’s in New City. The group decided to defer the next meeting in December, probably after Christmas.  Watch for further information. If you would like more information or would like to join us, please let Mary Gardella know at 845-634-9381 or

On Saturday, October 21st the hiking groups went up to the Keplers’ house in Fort Montgomery and did a hike near there. The weather was gorgeous and it was fun to catch up!

Technology for the Mature User

Uncertain about the capabilities of your smart phone or iPad? Thinking of buying one of these? Want to learn more about basic and advanced email techniques, photo storage, downloading apps, facebook, etc? We are thinking about a short term small group to address any and all issues seniors face in keeping up with technology in a non-judgmental and positive atmosphere. You will leave the sessions with easy to follow written instructions. If you are interested, contact Mary Gardella.
