Birding - Co-ed

Led by: Grace Marie Ward

Come together with other nature lovers and get outside to discover the beauty of God’s creation. We will specifically be looking and listening for birds as we hear and see what makes each one unique. As a group we will discuss basic bird ID and some tools that will help us in that process. I am still a beginner, but fell in love with birding during Spring Migration in 2019. This group is for anyone new to this hobby or for someone with a lot of experience. All are welcome as we learn together.

We will pick four Friday or Saturday mornings throughout the Fall semester where will will meet from 7:30AM - 10:30AM in different locations throughout Columbia.

Blessed Bakers - Women

Beginning October 2
Led by: Jennifer Baldwin

It is said the kitchen is the heart of the home. I grew up baking with my mom and find such joy in trying new recipes and sharing them with friends and family. I am a hobby baker; by no means a professional. But with a teaspoon of time, a dash of friends and a heaping cup of love we can bake and learn together.

Zoom link will be emailed out upon registration.

One Friday a Month | 10 AM - 12 PM | Zoom Video Call

Cancer Support - Co-ed

Beginning September 15
Led by: LeRyiah Arant

For the last five years, until her passing in April 2019, I served as my Mom's caregiver and healthcare advocate. My mom was diagnosed with Glioblastoma brain cancer in January 2014 and became a participant in the Polio Clinical Trial at Duke University. She was a medical pioneer and fought a courageous battle until receiving eternal healing on April 7, 2019. My Mom lived and loved a life with cancer, but never defined by it. Our family continues to advocate for and support the brain cancer community. I believe the Lord created us to live in communion with Him and to live in community with one another. I am passionate about creating a safe haven for people to genuinely come as they are and find authentic Christian community to call home. I believe we must be intentional about creating community while having the willingness to be vulnerable and to "go first." You do not have to be a member of Mt. Horeb UMC to attend. Whether you are newly diagnosed, in remission or a cancer caregiver, you are encouraged and welcome to participate.

Zoom link will be emailed out upon registration.

Cross Stitch - Women

Beginning September 10
Led By: Leigh Johnson

My obsession with thread began at such an early age that all I could do was hold and admire it. At 10 I begged to be taught to cross-stitch by my older sister and I’ve been holding needle and thread for the last 42 years! It never ceases to amaze me that little tiny “x’s” can come together to make a beautiful creation. Sounds a lot like what God does with us, doesn’t it? I would love to host a group where we can share the love of cross-stitch, needlepoint and/or hand embroidery along with fellowship and prayer.

All levels are welcome!

I'm excited to be leading our interest group of quilters - both beginning and experienced quilters.

The "Guitar Pull" - Co-ed

Beginning September 13
Led by: Bill Black

Born and raised in Nashville, TN, I have loved the traditional music (country, blues, bluegrass, and gospel) that I grew up hearing. The songwriters and session players in Nashville had what they called 'guitar pulls'. These were just 'get-togethers' where they would share the music they were making with their contemporaries for feedback and just 'to hone their craft'. I have always loved playing and sharing music in that way! This group is for anyone who likes to play, sing, write, and / or listen to traditional music played on traditional acoustic instruments.

Day TBD | 7:30-8:30 PM | Location TBD
