We are always looking for ways to bring people together through Fellowship at FPC. There are numerous opportunities for you to connect with others in our church family:
FPC Quilters begin the new year with a break in January and will meet next on Febraury 15 (the third Thursday of the month) at 1:00pm in FPC’s Gathering Place. Our meetings are casual and informal; sometimes there is a bit of a program and sometimes not (ideas for programs are welcome!). We welcome new quilters, new church members/ attenders who are already quilters, and friends and relatives of FPC Quilters. Bring you quilting questions, problems, ideas, and show-n-tell if you'd like. We hope to see you there! Also, mark your calendars for a Tote Bag Workshop on Saturday, April 28. Dianne Larson will teach how to make a nice, roomy tote bag. Questions? Please contact Anne Frihart.
New Horizons: New Horizons is a gathering of FPC members over 55 and friends (guests of any age are always welcome) who meet for fellowship and food on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month during the school year. Our upcoming schedule is as follows:
January 10 at 11:30am - Lunchables at Spring Garden Restaurant, 225 S Century Ave., Waunakee.
January 24 at 11:30am - Todd Schmidt, the Waunakee Village Administrator will discuss Waunakee activities and plans. Potluck follows in FPC Fellowship Hall.
February 14 at 11:30am - Lunchables at China Wok Chinese Restaurant, 204 A-6 Century Ave., Waunakee. Wear Red for Valentine’s Day if you like.
February 28 at 11:30am - Diane Robinson will share her wonderful singing talent with us. Potluck follows in FPC Fellowship Hall.
We also have two card clubs going—if you are a pinochle or sheepshead player, these offer great ways for you to extend your fellowship opportunities. Contact Dave Healy for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Pinochle Card Club meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month in Fellowship Hall (just prior to the New Horizons program). Their next gathering will be Wednesday, January 24 from 9:00–11:00a.m If you would like any additional information about this group, please contact Dave Healy at email@example.com.
Our Sunday morning Coffee Hours make it easy to meet people and catch up with friends, as well as serve the congregation. The Fellowship team could use your help supporting our weekly coffee hours by organizing food and supplies, and cleaning up after the second service coffee hour. Cleaning up takes approximately 30–45 minutes and leaves the Gathering Space bright for the coming week. Whether you’d like to help out once a month, or once a quarter—your time will be appreciated! If you think this is a way you would like to get more involved at FPC, please contact Kate Dietry.
Finally, for all the bookworms out there, FPC Book Club typically meets on the first Sunday of the month right after the second service about 12noon at MnMs Cafe in Waunakee. FPC’s next book club gathering will take place on Sunday, February 4: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate; March 4: Inheriting Edith by Zoe Fisherman; and April 8: 4321 by Paul Aster. Join us at any time!

Do you have a special talent or interest you would like to share with members of the congregation? The Fellowship team is always looking for new ways to bring people together, and we’d love to help you facilitate an event. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for an outing, special interest class, or other event. I’d love to hear from you!Have an idea for a way to have fun with others as part of the FPC community? Contact Kate, our Fellowship Elder, through the church office!
Fellowship events bring our FPC faith family together. From Sunday morning coffee to special activities throughout the year, we strive to connect families, children, youth, and retirees to foster long-lasting Christian relationships. We offer curling, Mothers Day Brunch, concerts, lunches & dinner outtings, card groups, and all types of activities!
