Fellowship Ministries

Here are some of our regular fellowship activities. We have various special events throughout the year as well such as our Lenten vegetarian meal gatherings, hiking sprees, progressive dinners, etc. Special events are posted in the parish's weekly announcements.

Coffee Hour

Each Sunday after the 10:00 service, we linger a short while to celebrate together, welcome newcomers, and visit with old friends and new. Weekly hosts are asked to bring some light finger foods (fruit, cheese, crackers, cookies, etc.), and offer friendly conversation and a warm welcome in the Parish Hall.  We encourage all members to sign up to host, or to partner with a friend,

Knifty Knitters

Every Wednesday morning from 9:30-11:30 our crafters meet in the church library to share fellowship and to create:

-Free hats, scarves, mittens and gloves for chilly local kids through our ministry partners, the Phyllis Zumkher County Clothing Center, Kent Social Services and the Miller Community House shelter for homeless.

  • -Prayer shawls and lap robes for people in need of comfort
  • -Crafts of all kinds to benefit those in need and to raise money for our many ministries

No experience necessary! Group members are happy to teach you how to knit and crochet – all tools and materials provided.

Lunch Bunch

The second Tuesday of each month, we gather at a local restaurant for lunch to enjoy a good meal, each other's company, and get to know each other better. We collect donations various times throughout the year for local charities. Everyone is welcome to join!

Youth Group

Our youth group meets once a month from September through May, and students in grades six through twelve are welcome to join! We have youth  from many different areas including Kent, Stow, Ravenna, Bedford, Macedonia, Munroe Falls and Broadview Heights. We're here to enjoy fellowship, have fun, and enrich faith!


The Black Squirrel Piecemakers

The Black Squirrel Piecemakers are a group of women who make quilts for babies in the community who are in need. We give the quilts to Project Linus who distributes them. We are a new group who meet here in the parish hall every Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until noon. No skills are required. Everyone is learning new skills. No sewing machine is required, but one can be brought to the group. We would love to have others join us.

20s/30s Group

A parish-based ministry to serve our young adult members and their friends.   It is our hope that this ministry will draw our young adults more deeply into the Church’s communion and the Church’s service to the world.  The Christ Episcopal Church 20’s/30’s group is a parish-based community of young adults who seek to draw closer to Christ and the Church through  friendship and service.  We will offer monthly gatherings, liturgies, service opportunities, shared meals, outdoor trips, and other social events.   New members from the parish and beyond ages 20 – 39, single and married, Episcopal and non-Episcopal are always welcome to join us for any gathering or event. Leadership will be provided by a core team of young adults and the advisors.  This non-elected body will be composed of those 20/30’s interested in giving their time to organization and leadership. We are open to all. (So, bring a friend.)
