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.
