A frolic is an opportunity for fellowship, socialization, and–in some cases–a very unique experience. Frolics are hosted by members of our community for our community. In anticipation of decreased building use while we are under construction, frolics will provide a much needed opportunity for connection and fellowship. Monies raised through the sale of frolics will go to support local mission and our capital construction. There are 25 frolics being offered, covering a wide range of fun activities for all ages. Almost all of our frolics have a limited number of spots available and will be offered first come, first served. You can browse and sign up for frolics below.

Through conversation and story telling, Tracey will share how this empowering, energizing and uplifting practice is available to every one of us. She offers a simple yet overlooked way to tip the scales back towards positivity in an increasingly negative news cycle. A Few Kind Words is an intentional kindness practice that will make your day!

Fine Woodworking from a 2 x 4 ?! | hosted by Jeff Vamos
The joy of woodworking is to take a humble chunk of wood, a gift from nature, and turn it into something well crafted, and conversant with the material. If you’ve ever been curious about what woodworking is about—this frolic is for you. We’ll take a humble 2 X 4 and make boxes using many of the tools and techniques of woodworking. Each person will have a finished box to take home, and will be able to use all of the major power tools used in woodworking (table saw, jointer, disc sander, etc.). Meant for complete beginners, or those with some experience who want to up their woodworking game.
