Women Small Groups

Women of Connections:
  • This group is not meeting at this time.
 
Faith Partners:
  • Gather the 2nd Sunday of the month at 8:00am either online or in-person while physically distancing outside.
  • Current Study: “Verbs of God: How God Moves On Our Behalf ” / by Margaret Feinberg – RightNow Media
      • This study reminds us that no matter what your emotions or mind or circumstances may try to tell you, the truth is that God is not only present, but he has movement. Explore some of the verbs of God – the attributes of God in motion – and be reminded that God is truly more present than we ever imagined!
The Prayer Shawl Ministry:
  • Starting Sunday, September 12th, we gather on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 2pm in the Fireside Room at Grace.
  • The Prayer Shawl Ministry knits and crochets shawls to give to people in need of God’s comfort and love. These shawls are stitched with prayers asking for peace, comfort, and God’s love for the person that receives it. The prayer shawl group will usually meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 2pm in the Fireside Room starting on September 12, 2021. If your schedule doesn’t permit you to come to every meeting, don’t let that stop you from joining the group! You can come when you are available and work on shawls in your spare time.
  • The prayer shawl group will be holding a mini craft sale this year in November. We will have hand-made items such as scarves, winter hats, dish cloths, holiday ornaments, and much more. All of the monies from this go to the debt reduction of the church. Keep this in mind for some of your holiday gift shopping! There will be an announcement in the weekly bulletins a few weeks before the sale dates.
      • If you have any questions about the group, what we do, or would like to give a shawl to someone that needs one, you can contact Karen Svercek at 717-689-6003 or ksvercek207@gmail.com.

 Women’s Retreat 2021

Thank you to all of the women who indicated an interest in attending a fall Women’s Retreat!  We must have a minimum of 25 participants in order to hold the retreat and we have heard back from 14 women.  If you are interested, please be sure to fill out the interest form by August 15, 2021 so that we can determine the path forward.  

The retreat will begin on Friday, October 1, 2021 in the evening and conclude on Sunday, October 3, 2021 after brunch.  The group will gather on the beautiful grounds of Mount Ashbury Retreat Center in Newville for the event.  The theme is Café Chocolat, and the weekend will be an opportunity to reconnect with one another while growing in our faith!  There will be fellowship, laughter, music, activities, prepared meals (No cooking! LOL!), and, of course, lots of chocolate!  Please fill out the interest form which provides more details (see below).
