EATON community groups

Games and Fellowship 
Jenny Honaker and Pam Bradburn desire to create space for fellowship and games with one another. This will be a casual gathering, bring a snack and maybe your favorite game. We will also provide games. We want to accommodate as many as possible, that's why we choose the first Tuesday and third Sunday each month at the Eaton House, 233 N Barron Street. Let's celebrate community!
This group will be hosted by Shane Koogler and Marsha Macy. The desire for each person attending is that they will gain hope and healing, and learn how God can be instrumental in helping them through this process. DivorceCare consists of video seminars, group discussions and personal exercises. This 13 week class is for individuals in separation, newly divorced, or suffering from long term effects of divorce.
Date, location and time: TBA
