Welcome To Women’s Fellowship
The fellowship of women in our church includes every woman, young and old, member or “friend” of the church. We are a busy group that plays a vital role in the life of this church in so many ways. Some of those ways include the following:
♥ Knitting shawls through an active Prayer Shawl Ministry
♥ Sending our own line of beautiful photo cards created by Diane Burgess to our “Cheer List” four times a year
♥ Hosting funeral and memorial service receptions when needed
♥ Actively supporting our church fundraisers such as the December Christmas Cookie Sale and Easter Bake Sale
♥ Sponsor our own fundraiser that for the last 25 years has been our annual Mid-Winter Chocolate Fest held in February. A new version is planned for 2024.
♥ Occasionally plan programs and women’s retreats for all to enjoy
We have three business meetings a year where all women are invited to gather, to engage in meaningful discussions and make decisions of how to spend our financial earnings. These meetings, as well as, any other women’s events during the year will be posted through the Weekly Word and monthly Belfry Chimes. We are also informed through emails from our Women’s Fellowship president.
We are also a part of a wider fellowship of women who are connected through the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ. The SNE Conference of the UCC came into being on Jan. 1, 2020 with the coming together of the historic Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island Conferences. The Conference is one of 36 regional bodies of the United Church of Christ, a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action. The Conference comprises 615 churches, more than 1600 authorized ministers and nearly 120,000 members. We are invited to join together with SNE Conference women at various times throughout the year including an annual Spring Gathering.
