Women's Fellowship

Candle Tea, annual fall retreat

As the year quickly comes to a close, the Women’s Fellowship Leadership Team wanted to share a few bits and pieces with you.

If you’re looking for Advent or Christmas resources (for your family, your Circle, or yourself), be sure to check out moravianchristmas.org. There’s an interactive calendar that includes videos of bible stories, reflections, crafts, and more.

We have received $4,090 in gifts and pledges to Women’s Fellowship with $3,050 received. If you haven’t yet paid your pledge or made a gift, please consider doing so before 12/31. If you have any questions, please contact Katherine Vogler, Women’s Fellowship Treasurer.

New opportunities to connect are in the works for 2022! We’ve heard from someone interested in leading a walking group (for fellowship and faith conversations if desired), an artistic experience for Lent, a night out for pizza-making and conversation, and more.

Stay tuned for details and please let us know what you’d like to see happening through Women’s Fellowship as we look at interest groups, community events, and service projects.

If you have any questions or thoughts, please email hmcwomensfellowship@gmail.com or contact anyone on the Leadership Team. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

The mission of Women's Fellowship is to deepen relationships with God and one another through Christian fellowship and service to all. The Fellowship is open to all women over the age of 18. 

 Women's Fellowship fulfills its mission through four areas: interest groups, community events, service projects, and Circles. To learn more about each area, you can read the Fellowship's Guiding Principles. If you have an idea for an interest group, community event, or service project, and are not sure where to begin, be sure to read this document that explains how to get started turning your idea into reality.

In January 2021, a Women’s Fellowship Task Force completed a year-long process that resulted in some changes in the Women’s Fellowship’s governance, organization and operations. Watch a video and download a document of the Task Force report.

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 also holds a fall retreat each September at Laurel Ridge. It's a time of learning, fellowship, rejuvenation and fun, open to all Home Church women and their guests.
