The Women`s Gathering [WG] meets at the church usually on the first Monday of each month. Each meeting is five hours long and consists of a Bible study from the PW magazine, Horizons, a potluck, sewing, mission and craft activities. The ladies attend part of this time, as their schedules and interests vary.
The WG participates in the mission activities of the Presbyterian Women USA. We have an active role in the Presbyterian Network Mission, "Stiches of Love, where our members make laprobes for the VA Center and baby items for a local Women`s Center. We have an annual baby shower to provide basic items for families in need. In January, the WG sponsors a special sewing workshop to make scarves for the Samaritan Homeless Clinic. We also provide hygiene kits and warm clothing for the clinic.
The WG sponsors a secret sister program within the church titled Secret Sisters in Christ, and holds a Valentine luncheon in February to exchange names. Their sisters are remembered during the year with prayers and devotional gifts and honored by donations in their name to charities. We have a Christmas Party in December.
Fundraisers are held to help provide money for our mission work. These include: a Spring Bazaar, the Harvest Bazaar, Flea Market, and Raffle, all held at the church, and a Christmas Bazaar in Beavercreek.
All ladies are encouraged to participate and are always welcome.
