Women's Fellowship strives to promote fellowship among the women of the Church, by working and serving together in various Church and community outreach projects. All women of the Church are automatically members. There are no dues or pledges, but we have found a way to raise funds to support our general mission. Our annual Bazaar in November fills McSpadden Hall with various sale items, such as jewlery, art, house wear and decor, clothing, etc., and serves as an important vehicle to bring together all the members of the Church, including men as well as women. After collecting proceeds from the Bazaar, the Women's Fellowship Committee presents their annual pledge to the Church. Women's Fellowship funds have helped pay for the new Sanctuary organ, contributed to the "Complete the Dream" program, and supported many other Church and mission projects in the community and around the world.
The Monday Morning Workshop is a group of women who meet every Monday from 9:30 am - 11:30 am to make items to sell at the Bazaar. They also have coffee and lunch together before they leave. On the first Monday of the month, the women go out to lunch.
The Perky Patchers are a group of women who meet every Friday morning at 9:30 am in the White house and also work all year making quilts and many other crafts for the Bazaar. They also have lunch together. Again, all women's fellowship groups are open to all women of the Church.
