Women’s Fellowship

Photo of Women's Fellowship retreat in 2017Women’s Fellowship is a friendly gathering of women who support each other’s spiritual growth.

We usually meet the second Sunday evening of each month, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. downstairs in the Barber Room. Our program year is designed at the first meeting each October with input and suggestions from all. We are always looking for new members, of all ages, so please come check us out.! We meet Oct. through June, a coastal retreat in Feb/Mar. and occasional summer gatherings. Please enter through the Atrium doors.

We invite all women of the church to join us for our next gathering.
