Chiques Women in mission

The Chiques Women in Mission group supports a myriad of missionaries and projects. They sponsor the All Church Bazaar in November, and the Mother/Daughter Banquet in May.  If you have a heart for missions, this is the group for you.

We meet the third Thursday of the month at 6:30pm, in Sloan Hall, from February through November. 

We would love to have you join us!

The Elderberries

Our senior group, the Elderberries, provides engaging programs for fun and fellowship each month. Each program opens with a devotional and concludes with refreshments.  The programs vary from musical performances, guest speakers, to innovative tours in the surrounding area. We meet the second Tuesday of each month in Sloan Hall. We would love to have you join us!

This group's meetings are currently paused. 

Please contact Roger Gundlach for more information.

Volunteers in mission

The purpose of Volunteers in Mission (VIM) is to show the love of Jesus, as they perform the physical tasks needed in emergency situations and ongoing operations. Chiques sponsors an ongoing VIM Team each February to service the Methodist Church in a mountainous area of Puerto Rico, in need of assistance.  If you have a passion for missions, this group may be a great place to connect.
