Christian women growing in and sharing their faith yearn to do more than just attend Sunday services. They want to make friends and share companionship, find and develop opportunities to serve others, and celebrate being part of a sisterhood of believers. The women around us weave invisible nets of love that carry us when we’re weak and support us when we’re strong.
We are meant to be in community with others in both large and smaller groups. Whether you are a member, visitor or friend, large events such the Christmas Tea, Mother’s Day salad luncheon, overnight or day-long retreats bring women together in fellowship. These events encourage women to seek deeper involvement and come together in small groups, known as Life Groups.
Each Life Group is individually developed around a video or book study, crafts such as needlework, a meal or special time together, with bible study or devotionals and service also being part of the small group experience. These small groups evolve into a safe place to share deeply, to encourage and uplift others in difficult circumstances, and become more empathetic and understanding of those around us. All women are welcome to join the sisterhood.
Fresh flowers, bright angels, delicious sweets, and wonderful Christmas music by Taylor and Derek Stull set the mood for the Christmas Tea on Saturday, sponsored by Women’s Fellowship and organized by Donna Gray. Women and girls who attended enjoyed visiting, making new friends, sampling a variety of sweet treats, creating sparkling angels to take home, and writing notes of appreciation to Litchfield Park school employees (a Community Engagement project). "Thank you to everyone who volunteered in large and small ways to help make the Christmas Tea a joy-filled afternoon for everyone who attended," Donna said.
