COLUMBIA— The First Presbyterian Church hosts a monthly gathering for its members on Saturday mornings at Chez Coffee House.

Ann Bouchard, director of Christian education at the church, said the mostly female group meets every weekend to learn a new type of crafting skill from each other.

"It's an unique opportunity for women to get connected, learn about new things and to share common interests," she said.

Participants of this Saturday’s gathering will learn to make Christmas ornaments such as angel toppers and wise men that will be sold at thechurch's Dec. 3 Christmas Bazaar.

The church will provide the materials needed to make the pieces, Bouchard said. Any Christmas embellishments donations, such as scrapbook paper and ribbon, are appreciated to help complete the project.

She said people who are not members of the church are also welcome to join.

"People at the church are really hospitable," Bouchard said. "We'd love to have some new faces join us."

Refreshments will be served at the gathering, which starts at 10 a.m. For more information, call 442-1164.
