Each Sunday from September to June after the 10:30am service, the St. Mary's family gathers in Shaffer Hall to spend some fellowship time together and have a snack. During the summer months when there is just one service at 9 am, everyone gathers outside on the loggia for cool refreshments—usually iced tea instead of coffee.
Volunteers are needed to host these coffee hours, and it's very easy to do:
Choose a snack (bagels, cookies, donuts, coffee cake) to provide enough for about 40 people
Arrive at church 30 minutes before the service and set up your refreshments (we'll help you learn how to make coffee!)
After you receive communion, head right to Shaffer hall or the loggia to make any last-minute adjustments and to make more coffee, if necesssary
After coffee hour, place the coffee cups in the dishwasher, start the dishwasher and leave
To sign up to host Coffee Hour, please look for the sign-up sheet in the narthex. If you have questions, please contact the office at St. Mary’s.
