Gratitude Gals is a group for women who want to come together WEEKLY to broaden their spiritual lives and share their spiritual journeys with each other.   This is done through reading and discussing both secular and sacred books and sharing experiences for which each woman is grateful.  While Gratitude Gals is NOT a book club, books are used to support spiritual growth.  The current 10 AM Monday session is at full capacity.  Another Gratitude Gals group is now meeting on Thursdays.  For more information, contact Sandy Hughes, coordinator, sandy.hughes@ymail.com.
