CHRISTMAS EVE WORSHIP, DECEMBER 24, 2017:
THANKSGIVING WORSHIP, NOVEMBER 21, 2017:
We celebrated Thanksgiving at Living Word along with Our Saviour, Hinckley, and Holy Trinity, Brunswick, on Tuesday evening, November 21, with a combined choir This combined worship has become a fall tradition. After worship, we enjoyed fellowship with coffee, cider and lots of pie.
The ladies enjoyed a lovely lunch at Olive Garden on May 20. We brought photos and shared stories of special women who have influenced our lives: mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and daughters.
Fifteen of us enjoyed a night of Irish dining on Saturday, March 18, at the Hooley House Pub and Grille in Fairlawn/Copley. In addition, the guys were also able to enjoy the views of the ongoing March Madness basketball games.
BUCA DI BEPPO NIGHT:
We were seated in the very special “Pope’s” room for dinner with lots of spaghetti, chicken parmesan and fettucine alfredo served family style. The décor is always amazing and the service comes with lots of smiles. We thank Bob Moorhead and Susan Thompson for organizing this evening out.
SPAGHETTI DINNER: ‘
Our Fellowship Committee really outdid themselves with an Italian buffet at church in February. We enjoyed spaghetti, stuffed shells, salad and many delicious desserts. In addition, our own professional photographer, Bob Moorhead took photos of each of us.
On January 15, fifteen of us (and Mr. Potato Chip Bag – inside joke) enjoyed a fairly raucous evening of Bunco with several profiting a little and a lot. Many thanks to our Fellowship Committee for planning this fun evening.

OUR NEWEST ADDITION
Living Word’s Little Library was installed in front of the church on December 12. Digging was not easy, hitting a cement foundation and digging through tough clay, but the job was accomplished with the help of Jim Watson, Brandon Schuster and Bob Moorhead. Our thanks to Jim Matyas for building the library and to the congregation for donating lots of books to fill it. We want to bring our neighbors right to our doors!
MOTHER’S DAY LUNCH AT MISS MOLLY’S TEAROOM – 2015
Twelve mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and daughters enjoyed lunch at Miss Molly’s Tearoom in Medina on Saturday, May 9, to celebrate all WOMEN. In addition to a great lunch there was a “hat decorating” contest with Pat Grant coming in first and MaryAnn Vithous, second. Congratulations to you both for your creativity.
Thanks for everyone who made the day possible. Sue Steinman broke her ankle and volunteers stepped in to keep the day special.
FEBRUARY UGLY SWEATER CHILI COOK OFF – 2015
Our Annual Chili Cook-off was a lot of fun! We had 6 very different pots of chili to sample. Our Blue Ribbon winner was Peggy Tampson’s spicy meatless chili and even Keith Steinman liked it so it certainly deserved first place. To add to the spirit of competition, we conducted an ugly sweater competition with Mady Bauer and Ken Dudas receiving the dubious honors of wearing the “Ugliest” sweaters of the evening.
Our baked goods’ auction was a great success raising $63 to be used for future fellowship events. Plans are already underway for a meatloaf cookoff next year. So start sprucing up your favorite recipe so you will be ready for the competition.
And, of course, our thanks to Sue Steinman and our wonderful Fellowship Committee for creating another fun evening!
