Primetime is a church-based organization providing spiritual growth, service to others, and education. This program provides opportunities for social involvement and gives people a sense of community and support. Federated Church sponsors this program to help enrich the lives of its members and the wider community.



The Federated Forum meets on the second Monday of each month from September through June. It presents a diverse variety of interesting programs guaranteed to educate, entertain, challenge and even amuse those who attend.

We gather about 1:30 for "after-lunch" light refreshments and conversation. The programs start at 2 pm, always include a question & answer period, and conclude promptly at 3.

Monday, October 14


Presenter: Lori Muller-Zaim and Susann Sloan

Subject: Books that Changed the World


We are excited to have a presentation from one of our most cherished Chagrin Falls shops, the Fireside Book Shop. One of the owners, Lori Muller-Zaim, and her associate, Susann Sloan, will be discussing books that “changed the world.” We will also be introduced to some of the current bestsellers.


They will address the “next generation” and what the young people of today are reading. We may be surprised at what schools are actually choosing as required reading.


Of special interest for history buffs, they will talk about the history of the shop and of the local Chagrin business area. The Fireside Book Shop has been in existence for 56 years and it  remains a cornerstone of the local shopping district.

Join us for a stimulating program of special local interest!




Primetime Luncheons or Lunch Out Events are normally held monthly from September through June.

PRIMETIME FUNDRAISER: Blind Squirrel Winery in Bainbridge

Wednesday, October 16

Meet at Blind Squirrel Winery: 7918 Pettibone Road

Come and wine down with us as we enjoy a tasting of three of their most popular wines. We will have appetizers, chicken marsala, pizza, salad and cookies. We will also have raffle prizes.

Bill and Cookie Delgado own the winery and they bought the property at a sheriff’s sale in 2015. Bill will tell us about how their love for wine brought about the Blind Squirrel Winery and all they had to go through to get it up and running. Through local winemakers and educators at Kent State and Ohio State Universities, they learned about wine making. Now, that they are wine educated, Bill, a retired teacher is going to test our wine knowledge through some wine trivia questions, so get your thinking caps on!

This fundraiser will help Primetime continue our mission to provide enriching opportunities for social involvement and a sense of community in our congregation and beyond.

Cost: $55 (includes dinner and wine tasting). Make checks payable to Federated Chruch.

RSVP to 440.247.6490 by October 7.

Bell Street Daily Bread Classroom

This group of women gather for chatting, laughing, coffee, oh and yes, very basic sewing for a very worthy cause.


They create pillows that patients at Hospice of the Western Reserve use as they journey through the final season of life. The little neck pillows are used for comfort. For hygienic reasons, the pillows are discarded after use so there is always a need for more.


The fellowship often includes some yummy treats. All are welcome.
