There are 8 Shepherd Groups with an Elder assigned to each one. One or more volunteers serve as group leaders. The leaders are the contact people for that group. They help organize at least two social activities per year. In the event of the death of a member of the group, the shepherd group assists the Bereavement Committee of the Deacons with a meal and refreshments (as appropriate) for the family and guests. Shepherd Groups help, as assigned, with the Fellowship Hour after Worship. Other activities may include serving at the Lenten Soup Suppers. The shepherd group organization serves as a communications link between the church and each of the shepherd group members.
Following every worship service there is an opportunity to meet and greet members and guests visiting here. Coffee, juice and cookies are served by the people of different shepherd groups.
Theater and Drama
During the Lenten Season, there are soup suppers served in conjunction with the Lenten Dramas. In the Fall the Presbyterian Players present a comedy play open to the public. Contact the church for more information. Be sure to visit the Presbyterian Players page under Ministries.
There are both Men’s and Women’s golf groups available during the good weather season. There are two Men’s groups: Tuesdays, (“PREZ”) and Thursdays, (“SANDTRAPPERS”) We play for fellowship and fun and all are welcome, (not just members of PCBV), regardless of your level of play.
Ladies Birthday Luncheon
All Ladies of the Church are invited to attend the luncheons whether it’s your Birthday month or not. The ladies have a good time and celebrate whoever has a birthday;if there are no birthdays, we go out and enjoy each others company. The luncheons are held on the 4th Friday of the month unless otherwise indicated. For information, call the church office.
Singletarians are member of the congregation and others who find themselves alone, either by choice or by the death of a spouse. Singletarians meet informally from time to time for fellowship and to attend dinner, plays, outings, itec. They stand ready to support each other by lending a hand to help, an ear to listen, and a shoulder to lean on.
Exercise Program For your health
The wisdom of sustained physical activity over a lifetime is beneficial for the mind and body is reaffirmed in a new report from the Women’s Sports Foundation. They reviewed many studies on physical activity in girls and women. ‘The five years of studies suggest that participation in sports and long-term physical and mental health are inextricably mixed” said Professor Ellen Staurowsky at Ithaca College. ‘There is growing evidence that behavior and environment are responsible for over 70 percent of avoidable mortality.” One of the studies shows that annual direct and indirect costs of chronic health conditions resulting form sedentary lifestyles are about $150 billion.
