St. Anthony on the Desert Social Connections
Desert Diners are dinner groups that have been created to provide parishioners an informal social setting to become better acquainted, share life experiences and make new friends. Participants sign up twice a year in the fall and spring. Each group of six to eight adults comes together for a shared potluck meal, usually at the homes of the participants; however, it could be at a local restaurant, the Parish Hall, club house, etc. For more information contact Cindy Creamer.
The Welcome Team is a group of energetic, highly-dedicated members whose purpose is to offer radical hospitality to those who visit our campus. As guests are welcomed to share in our worship, teaching and outreach, the love of Christ is shown. Christian hospitality is to see Christ in every person. The Team assists guests, answers questions and creates a welcoming environment where people will feel comfortable and appreciated. If you have a heart for welcoming guests, and perhaps even entertaining angels, contact Jill Kyler. Winter Residents and Seniors
The Winter Residents and Seniors group encourages winter residents and seniors to connect with each other and celebrate love for Christ by reaching out. Monthly gatherings take place in a variety of places...at church, in homes or other locations such as a city park or dinner theater. Outreach activities have included purchasing chickens, goats and mosquito nets for people around the globe and providing a micro-credit loan for honey producing. For more information contact Mary Anne Bost or Carol Stott.
