We host 2 Women’s Bible Study Circles that meet once a month for study, fellowship and fun.
The Naomi Circle meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 1 p.m.
The Sarai Circle meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.

We have a group of dedicated women who gather on Monday mornings at 9 a.m. to tack quilts for Lutheran World Relief and for local shelters (Ozanam, YWCA, Aurora, and the Evansville Rescue Mission). Annually, they complete more than 300 quilts for these organizations. They have met for the 51 years our congregation has existed, which means they have assembled more than 15,000 quilts!

Our annual WELCA Luncheon and Meeting is held in September and our Christmas Party and Luncheon is held on the first Sunday of December.

Each year, we also collect our pennies and coins to be collected and sent to the national WELCA Organization during our Thankoffering Service. This service happens every November and has a different theme each year. Women from the congregation help with all areas of leadership during this service.

We have a Secret Pal program, collect travel sized toiletries for the Albion Fellowes Bacon Center, paper products for the Mission of Grace, eye glasses for the Lions Club, and soda can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House.

Beginning in 2016, we will be beginning a Book Club, to meet monthly. Stay tuned for more information about meeting times and what book we will be reading!
