Wednesday Night "Full Tilt" Bible Study - 7:00pm (September through June)
Bible Study is a time when we gather as a community to read and study God's word together.  We come with our questions.  We come with our curiosities. We come bringing all of who we are.  This is a time of conversation, not one of lecturing or teaching.  We all dive in together discerning how God is speaking to us today. Come and join us one Wednesday.

Arts & Crafts for Children (Free) - Friday 6:30pm *
* On Break for the Summer. Will start again in the Fall

Community Dinner - Saturday, September 27h 4:00-6:00pm
Come join your fellow residents of Fishtown at a community dinner. This is a dinner where everyone is welcome, whether you are a long-time resident of Fishtown or if you've just moved into the neighborhood recently.  This will be a time and a place where we can all come together as Fishtowners, enjoy a good meal, and be in fellowship with each other. The best part - the meal is free!  We truly want to make this meal accessible to everyone.
