Activities & Gatherings



Make new friends and visit and fellowship with old friends.  The Fireside Room is the gathering place, following both morning worship services, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a refreshment (sweets, fruits, cheese and crackers, etc.) while you chat with friends. . We would love to have you join us in this warm and informal gathering of members and non-members. There is always a need for those who are willing to assist with coffee hour by providing refreshments, making coffee, and/or helping with set-up or serving.

FIRESIDE ROOM:  Sunday mornings beginning at 9 am!


Want to share a meal or an outing with old or new friends? Then please come join us. Couples and singles are all welcome. Every four months new groups of six are formed which gives each “couple” (that includes 2 singles) an opportunity to host an event — brunch, lunch, dinner, or games with dessert. It can be in your home, at a restaurant (“dutch-treat”) or in a park. Perhaps an afternoon or evening at the theater followed by a meal or just dessert — wherever your imagination takes you! 


The Methodist “Lunch Bunch” Club is mostly a social organization where both married and single, men and women come together in the name of Jesus Christ.  Once a month members spend time together  enjoying lunch and a program of interest. Members also sponsor numerous activities that directly support the church and the congregation such as: the Shrove Tuesday pancake supper; the Christmas post office (the exchange of congregational Christmas cards); Valentines and Mother’s and Father’s Day lunches;  “Lunch With Us” fund raiser; and many other fun and fund raising projects.


Paradise United Methodist has a talented group of dramatists who present biblical skits during services.  They also perform larger productions, including an annual Mystery Dinner Theatre and Christmas Musical. If you like to ham it up, come and join in the fun.


Emmaus welcomes any woman or man into their group that  has participated in an Emmaus Walk or a Cursillo. Please contact office staff for further information.
