Welcome to OTWomen
A place for you… (Jr High and older)
Women’s ministries, formerly known as CWC – Christian Women Connection has changed its name to OTWomen. We invite all women, youth and up to join us for our monthly activities. We meet each month on the second Saturday at 9:30 am for a short business meeting in the Board Room downstairs (unless otherwise noted). Sometimes we follow with a time of fellowship and fun—often involving food—always involving a great time getting to know other women who love Jesus.
Watch the church bulletin and this webpage for specific details or stop by our OT Women table in the expanded foyer and see what’s going on. We hope you’ll join the fun, too.
