Welcome to the Women’s ministry at Oregon Trail Church of God. We love getting together to have fun, whether we’re playing or working.
We meet monthly—sometimes it’s a business meeting to plan events for the future. Other times we meet for friendship and fellowship. Watch the church bulletin and this web page for specific details. Or grab one of the women in the church and find out what she knows. We hope you’ll join the fun, too.
Here are upcoming events.
A few 50/50 payment scholarships are available. Please contact the church to apply.
NEXT CWC BUSINESS MEETING: Saturday, March 11 at 10:00 (NOTE DIFFERENT TIME) in the upstairs cafe.
This month we extend our appreciation to outgoing officers Delila Morrison and Sharon Talley and install new officers Danette Noble (President) and Carol Peterson (Secretary).
Following the March 11 business meeting, Danette and Sue are hosting a “SOUP FOR THE SOUL” luncheon. Please do not miss this wonderful lunch in the cafe.
START READING NOW: Our next book club will gather on April 8, 2017 at 9:30, after the business meeting. We will discuss the novel, An Echo in the Darkness by Francine Rivers. This book is the second book in the Mark of the Lion trilogy that takes place in the Roman Empire shortly after Jesus’ crucifixion. It can be purchased at most Christian book stores or on Amazon.com (new or used) and can be purchased individually or as a single book that includes the entire trilogy .
NEW BIBLE STUDY! We just finished our study of Eve, so now is the perfect time to jump in and join us as we begin our next study. Starting February 21, we will study the lessons we can learn from Jesus’ earthly mother Mary, following Carol Peterson’s study I am Mary. We begin our study at 9:00 am with fellowship to follow the study at 10:00—including exercise, ladies!
THE NEXT YARD SALE (inside the Fellowship Hall) will be April 1. Start gathering your items and start bringing them to the church AFTER MARCH 1. We’re also looking for helpers the day of. This year’s yard sale will include baked goods, too. You definitely won’t want to miss the fun!
Also within the Women’s Ministry:
Yard Sale: We hold an indoor “yard” sale (usually spring and fall). Most items are priced at a quarter. Gather your goodies to donate or plan to attend and buy more. Next yard sale will be late August. Details will follow as the time nears.
Samaritan’s Purse: a world-wide filling of shoe boxes that are sent to children around the world. Shoe boxes are gathered in November and December, but the fun of shopping and filling them can last all year.
Hope’s Door: We support this local shelter for abused women and children financially and in practical ways.
Feeding the Grieving: Providing food and time for fellowship for families after church funerals.
Adopt-a-Senior: our ministry of canned and boxed food for elderly folk in the community.
Feed My Sheep: our ministry of providing meals for families in need. Please contact the church office if someone you know needs a meal or if you would like to provide one.
Women’s Retreat: Each spring women attend a weekend retreat off site for fellowship and inspiration. Stay tuned for details after the first of the year.
Dinners: The women coordinate various events throughout the year for fellowship with our congregation, including a Valentine’s Dinner, Thanksgiving Dinner and church-wide potlucks. The women also coordinate finger food and desserts for the Old Hymn Sing at our church and other occasions the Pastors might request.
Summer Fun: During the summer months we take a break from business but join together each month for fellowship and fun. Party Nights occur in June, July and August.
Linen Chest: Our women financially support the Linen Chest, a mission assistance through the Church of God. The Linen Chest provides linens, clothing, appliances, and college assistance for missionary families.
Change the World: Our women collect pocket change to help support the Church of God Christian Women Connection ministries, including SHINE, the church-wide Christ’s Birthday Offering that goes to mission outreach projects.
