CENTERPOINT INTEREST GROUPS
Interest Groups are a place to get to know others at Centerpoint and in our community who share your interest in a particular recreational activity. Bring your friends!
Groups meet weekly, monthly, or seasonally. Descriptions of the groups and their upcoming activities are listed below.
Hands of the Lord Quilters:
The quilters group meets once a month in the Annex from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. If you have an interest in making quilts and joing others in fellowship as you quilt, please join us as our need is greater than our small group of quilters. The next meeting is Monday, July 8. Contact Sandy Nelson. We are also looking for women interested in sewing together quilt tops. We have pre-cut and assembled kits for simple quilt tops. After you sew the squares together our group will then complete the quilting, binding & delivering of the quilts. Help us to be the “hands of the Lord” for the needy and hurting people in our community.
The quilters also make shorts and sundresses for children to send along with our Mission Teams. They are in need of: rickrack, ribbon or eyelet trim (up to 1" wide); extra-wide double bias tape (1/2" finished); lace hem tape (1/2" wide); sets of matching buttons; elastic (1/2" and non-roll elastic 3/4" or 1" wide).
Join us for fun and fellowhship on the water! We will plan to paddle at various locations. Contact Mark Parks or visit our Facebook Page. Our next paddle will be Saturday, June 22 Negro Bar / Lake Natoma at 9:00am.
Whether you have a small motorcycle or a big one, come take a ride with the "Holy Riders". Contact Doug Jacobs. Our next ride will be on Saturday, July 20 to Graeagle for lunch.
This active group hikes once a month all around northern California. All hikes meet at 7am at Johnson Ranch Racquet Club, 2501 Eureka Road, Roseville back by the tennis courts, North Club, for directions and car pooling. We often stop for dinner on the way home. Rain cancels the hike. No animals allowed. Contact Jere Myers. The next hike is on Saturday, June 22, the Limantour Beach trail in the Point Reyes area. It is a 7 to 8 mile easy to light moderate hike with great views of the bays and the Pacific Ocean. As always when hiking, hiking boots are recommended. No Pets.
The Crafters group is open to men and women. The Crafters meet every Wednesday of the month (except the first Wednesday of the month) from 9:15 to 11:45 am in the Annex from January through October. If you're interested, please contact Arlene Krysinski. Crafters will meet June 26.
We meet for a round or two of trap shooting at Coon Creek Trap and Skeet Club. For more information contact Lance Mayhofer.
We are a group of Christian men who love what good books;and men's fellowship have to offer. We meet once a month to discuss the DIFFERENT BOOKS we have been READING INDIVIDUALLY. On occasion, we spin off on an independent study or seminar on a specific book or topic of interest. We meet the first Tuesday of the month from 10:30 to 12 noon in the church library, with some going to lunch afterward. Contact Dave Shumway.
We all love a good book! And it's great to get together with other women who love to read, too. Join us 5-6 times a year to discuss our favorite books and enjoy an evening with friends. Be sure to check out our suggested reading list. The next meeting will be Monday, September 16, 6:30-8:30pm in the Centerpoint Library. We will discuss Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan. When Pino Lella's family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an Underground Railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps. In an attempt to protect him, Pino's parents force him to enlist as a German soldier - a move they think will keep him out of combat. He became the personal driver for Adolf Hitler's left hand in Italy, General Hans Leyers. Now, with the opportunity to spy for the Allies inside the German High Command, Pino endures the horrors of the war and the Nazi occupation by fighting in secret.
