Our Women's Ministry is in place to create a space to not only celebrate being women, but to give us a chance to break out of our daily routines and enjoy each other's company, building each other's faith and encouraging one another to grow in our walk with God (without worrying about kids at home or the chores that always seem to be there!)
Our events include:
Semi Regular Meetings: We meet together occaisionally, on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm. Our standard gatherings occur in September (to kick off the fall season) and at Christmas. Although we meet at other times as well, they are not as routinely planned.
Our Annual Retreat: At Shekinah in the spring (typically April or May), this is a time to get away for the weekend, enjoy great food, explore God's wonderful nature, learn from His word and spend time with each other. Many bring their crafting supplies, while others just sit and enjoy the scenary, a good book, a long (or short) hike or a nap! Recently, ladies from the Rock Church (and a few other churches) have joined us.
"Any excuse to celebrate" dates: These include baby showers and bridal showers.
Craft Saturdays: typically, on the third Saturday of every other month (September, November, January, March and May) the Lower Fellowship hall is open at 10:00am for women to bring their crafts and get some "serious" work done while enjoying each other's company. Bring your quilting, scrap booking, crocheting, cross stitching, painting, cards, flower making, etc suplies and your lunch. The church closes when the last lady goes home! Please check with the calendar for the next Crafting date.
Meal Train: When something unexpected (or sometimes, expected) happens, our women sign up to bring a meal to the family in need. Whether it is the new arrival of a baby, a sudden accident or medical emergency that takes someone out of commission for a bit, we want to bless others by making their burden a little lighter when it comes to meal prep!
