McFriends Fellowship Group changes meeting

PARKERSBURG — The McFriends Fellowship Group is changing its meeting schedule because of the weather.

The Christian men’s fellowship group meets once a month, on the third Wednesday at 9 a.m., at various churches in Vienna and Parkersburg during 10 months of the year.

Because of inclement weather early in the year, McFriends Fellowship will now meet in July and August instead of January and February, said Paul Booth of Vienna, group leader. The group, formed 21 years ago, had not been meeting in July and August.

The July 18 meeting will be at Fellowship Baptist Church on Rosemar Road and the Aug. 15 meeting at Stout Memorial United Methodist Church. The June 20 meeting is at Lynn Street Church of Christ.

The church hosting the meeting receives the “Jesus, or J, Dollars” from the men to be used for church projects. These often include mission work, church camps, food pantries and families in need.

McFriends Fellowship has donated $174,621 through May.
