The women of the church gather on the third Saturday of the month for prayer/meditation, planning, a program, fellowship and lunch. Any woman interested is welcome to come. Drop off a dish to share in the Kelsey Building and join us in the garden chapel for personal prayer/meditation at 10:00 a.m. The programs are varied and the fellowship is genuine.
We have two major fundraisers during the year. They might be a garage sale or a spaghetti dinner. We have started playing Bingo on occasion, which is great fun. The money that is raised is used to support local charities selected by the women in the group. The Women’s Group also hosts a Christmas party during the holiday season for all the women in the church.
Childcare is available for these meetings, as is transportation upon request. Every woman is encouraged to join in at any time during the year. The Women’s Group is part of a larger, statewide organization, the Florida Conference UCC Women. You can view their website at www.uccwomen.org.
Mission Statement – The Women’s Group of Christ Congregational Church is a warm and welcoming group available to all women of the church. We meet regularly and share fellowship during meetings, social events, and service projects both within the church and in outreach efforts. Along with fellowship, the group raises funds through a variety of projects or events and supports needs within the church and local community.
Reading for Renewal
The Florida Conference selects a list of books each year to encourage women (and men) to read books that are somehow connected to religion, spirituality or to the Mission topic of that year. Many of these books are purchased by the Women’s Group locally and available for everyone to borrow. For a complete list for the current year, go to www.uccwomen.org/reading-for-renewal. The books we currently have are located in the Kelsey Building.
