The group, Kaleidoscope, was formed when Pastors Lauren Swanson and Jeff Crawford set forth a task to PUMC congregants to begin some small groups that would include three components: Discipleship, Community and Evangelism.
Our group is always open and welcoming to new members. We meet once monthly in the church parlor after the first service. We share in the leadership of the group, but Cheryl Smith coordinates Kaleidoscope. Our group has chosen Christian based books that we read and share with each other when we meet. There are always study guides that are utilized to enhance our experience.
Some of the books we have read, include, Kaleidoscope by Patsy Clairmont, The Red Sea Rules by Robert Morgan and our most recent, You’ll Get Through This by Max Lucado.
We have also coordinated a church wide fundraiser to allow Pastor Michael in Uganda to purchase chickens for the Orphanage to raise so they can continue to be more self-sufficient.
