January Women’s Ministry Corner

DECEMBER’S COOKIE EXCHANGE: We are so grateful for Heather O’Hara and her willingness to host our annual Cookie Exchange in Room 100 on December 5.  Women brought all sorts of delicious treats and enjoyed socializing together.  Kids participated by decorating sugar cookies, gingerbread men, and coloring.  Below are some photos from our fellowship together.
JANUARY’S BREAKFAST: We are looking forward to our first (out of four) women’s breakfasts of 2016 this Saturday, January 9.  Please note that we do have one significant change: instead of having a potluck-style breakfast, we have several women who have already graciously signed up to be a part of January’s team and will be providing the meal.  IF you would like to be on our team for April, please e-mail  Our goal with this change is to make it as “come as you are”, as possible, for women.  SO, please – join us!  We are looking forward to hearing from Tamra Corbeau as she shares her heart.
FEBRUARY’S SHOWER FOR EXPECTANT MOTHERS:  We are so looking forward to celebrating our expectant mothers on Saturday, February 13 at 9 am in the Fireside Room.  Join us as we honor and pray for: Michelle Tackett (Natalie Mae was born December 26), Amanda Oberlin (due February 20), Jessie Whalen (due March 10), and Kristin Garcia (due June 3).  If you are expecting and would appreciate being prayed for, please let us know!  E-mail

  • Church Kitchen Cleaning Volunteers Needed for December-March
    A clean and organized church kitchen allows for us to continue so many ministry endeavors — care groups, receptions, luncheons, daily use by the church staff and Covenant School, etc.  This once-a-month rotation of 1-3 volunteers allows us to deep clean, maintain, and organize a heavily used church resource so it can continued to be used well.  Sign-up with a friend or get to know someone new by serving together in this way!  You can access the sign-up hereContact: Christine Fulcrod 540-746-4848 |
