We are part of an international organization of women. Our chapter supports many local, national, and international missions and supports emergency response.
Funds are raised through:
- Annual membership pledges
- Catering (teas, dinners, and special events)
- June rummage sale
Membership is open to all women. The chapter meets on the first Tuesday of the month (Sept-May) at 11 am in the Christian Life Center. Lunch is provided (donations accepted) and a program is offered. Circles, smaller groups of women from the chapter, also meet for education and special projects.
