All women of the church and of the community are welcome to participate in our activities. Our motto for 2013-2014 is "Looking Forward Into Our Future."
This year we are trying to discern where we should go in our future. Last year, using the World Cafe pattern, we held conversations with many women of the church trying to find ways to better serve women of all ages.
