February Women’s Ministry Corner

Committee Transitioning:  We would love to thank the ladies who currently served as WMC members for the 2015-2016 year:  Eileen Roberts, Amy Auker, Katie Crawford, Tamra Corbeau, Sandy Cuddy, Phyllis Di Bella, Christine Fulcrod, Kathryne Marple, Gale Puffenberger, Julie Root, Sarah Schroeder, and Gail Weeks.  We especially are grateful for Eileen’s service as chair.  This upcoming year, we are excited to see how the Lord uses Phyllis Di Bella as our new WMC chair.  The 12 ladies that will serve during the 2016-2017 year include: Phyllis Di Bella, Amy Auker, Katie Crawford, Sandy Cuddy, Brenda Deaconson, Krystal Dowell, Kathryne Marple, Karen Melnick, Canaan Miller, Julie Root, Sarah Schroeder, and Gail Weeks.  We are thankful for the Session as we continually seek to serve under their oversight.

Upcoming Prayer Shower for Expectant Mothers {Saturday, February 13 | 9 am-10:15am | Fireside Room}:  If you are able, we would love for you to join us as we come alongside and honor several ladies who are expecting.  We would love to lift them up in prayer as we eagerly anticipate each of their arrivals.  This “event” is such a special time as the WMC hosts these showers just twice a year.  We are so grateful for these moments where we can celebrate and “do life” together as a covenant family.  If you are able to bring something to share for a potluck breakfast, the WMC would greatly appreciate it!  For more information about the ladies who are expecting, please see announcements below.

JANUARY IN PHOTOS | Here are some snapshots from our time together at Barb Plating’s home for our January Ladies’ Breakfast!  We had over 30 ladies (and their kiddos) and it was such a sweet time of fellowship.  Thanks again to Tamra Corbeau for sharing.  Our next Ladies’ Breakfast is April 9 at Eileen Roberts’ home.



If you have a devotional, “Ministry Spotlight”, or a “Question of the Month” you’d be willing to share, please e-mail

  • Church Kitchen Cleaning Volunteers Needed
    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 |
