In the fall of 2016, pumpkin pies “that taste like your mother’s” were sold. The success of this project inspired a group of women from the congregation to “test the market” to make pies on a larger scale. The money raised would be used to supplement church expenses as well as to provide the taste of “homemade” to the public. The response has been overwhelming.
Advertising is by word of mouth and to date 665 pies (5 inch and 9 inch) have been sold. Favourites include: chicken, beef, cherry, pumpkin, strawberry rhubarb, blueberry, raspberry, apple and raisin.
One major purchase was that of a chest freezer and the remainder of the money has been used to promote social activities which include: Fun Day and Bean Supper, Linger Lunch with an Anniversary cake, Black History Month, Shrove Tuesday, AGM refreshments, Good Friday Pot Luck Lunch, Easter Breakfast, Thanksgiving Linger Lunch, and The Christmas Pot Luck Lunch.
New Members are welcomed. Meetings are informal. Just offer your time and talents.

Approximately once a month a light lunch is held after the service with a goodwill offering.
This group of approximately 11 to 14 people meet after church for lunch and sometimes for suppers and other activities.
