During Advent and Lent, Women’s Ministries host a brunch gathering at 10:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning. Food, fellowship and a program focusing on the season — men are welcome too! Contact the church office for more information.
ECUMENICAL WOMEN’S MINISTRY
This group of women have been gathering over coffee and treats for years. Formerly known as The Handcrafters, they now concentrate on fellowship and the Prayer Shawl Ministry. You can find them in the Timothy Room on Thursday mornings starting at 9 am; they usually stay until about noon, eating their bag lunches at about 11:30. Come for the entire morning or just for a cup of coffee and a brief visit. They love visitors. And if you don’t know how to knit or crochet, that’s ok too. You can ask one of the ladies to teach you, or join in the conversation!
Book Club: A specific book is read and discussed each month.
Carter Circle: This year Carter Circle is using the study guide Women of the New Testament: Finding Their Voices.
Meetings are held in members’ homes or at church and are at various times and days (information is in the bulletin, FCC Courier, and the website).
