PEP (People Enjoying People) meets on the first and third Tuesdays of every month from 9:00 am to 11:30 am. Our time together begins with a brief Bible study followed by a variety of activities which may include some stretching exercises, joke telling, cards and/or games. Come whenever you can, stay as long as you want. There is no regular commitment. The more the merrier.
Women’s Circle meets in the fellowship on the second Tuesday of each month at 2:00 pm. During this time the groups share a bible study time and refreshments. All women are welcome to attend. There is also a Sewing Circle that meets every Tuesday afternoon beginning at noon to make quilts either to sell for fundraising or to give to mission projects.

All men are invited to gather for breakfast and Bible study at the Buffalo Perkins each Thursday morning at 6:30 am. This is self-led and the fellowship is due to the great group of guys that are always there.
Community Bible Study
Every Thursday during the school year from 9:15 to 11:15, people of all ages from 27 different churches and 12 communities around Buffalo gather at St. John’s for a scripture based study built on shared Christian beliefs while accepting each other’s differences. Previous Bible knowledge varies from very little to advanced. While you study, trained teachers care for and teach your children from 0-grade 3 with crafts, snacks, games, and skits all centering on the day’s theme. All are welcome. Want to know more?
