Women of the ELCA Bible Study

Meets the first Tuesday of most months in the Lounge in the Administration Building. They discuss the Bible study found in "gather", the Women of the ELCA monthly magazine. They share fellowship and plan projects such as the Fair Trade Coffee, Tea, and Chocolate Bar sale, the proceeds of which go to support farmers in developing countries.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Ladies knit and crochet at home and meet periodically in the Lounge in the Administration Building for devotions while they knit and crochet.  The shawls are blessed during one of our Sunday worship services and then given wherever the need arises.
