The Women’s Fellowship promotes Christian fellowship among women of the Home Church congregation. The Fellowship invites all women of the congregation and their friends to be members, and divides into circles that unite in prayer, fellowship, mission and Bible study. The Women’s Fellowship also aids in the spiritual, social and financial work of the church. It supports families at times of bereavement with food and other hospitality.
The 2016 Women of the Church Fall Retreat will be held at Higgins Lodge, Laurel Ridge Camp and Conference Center, Sept. 16-18. The topic is “Created to be Creative: Expressing Wonder and Exploring Faith. Click here for more information and a registration form.
The group’s major annual undertaking is the Candle Tea held early in the Advent season – guided tours of the historic Single Brothers’ House with music, candle-making, coffee and Moravian sugar cake, a visit to the putz – a hand-crafted miniature model of Old Salem and a Nativity scene – and the Christmas story. Proceeds of the event go to benevolent causes.
The Women’s Fellowship cookbook, With Heart and Hand (fifth edition), is available for purchase through the church office. The cost is $25, or $30 if mailed. A great gift as well as an invaluable resource, the cookbook features a beautiful watercolor cover and a wealth of wonderful recipes.
