Women of the Church

Helping Hands

Women of the Church

Ebenezer UCC’s Women of the Church, formerly called the Ladies Aid Society, was organized on February 26, 1898. Over 118 years later, Women of the Church remain united and dedicated to lending their aid wherever needed and to the glory of God.

Women of the Church meet the first Tuesday of the month at 7 pm in quilting room, April through June, and September through December. All women of our church are considered members of the group. Those women and others from our community are welcome to come and join meetings and activities.

Here are just a few things they do:
N
Prepare and serve funeral luncheons whenever called upon.
N
Host an annual Penny Party.
N
Prepare the annual Homecoming Dinner, which is famous for its delicious menu and provides a delightful opportunity to reminisce with old friends.
N
Deliver flowers to our shut-ins every spring.
N
Prepare and deliver fruit baskets to our shut-ins every December.

Fundraising

The major fundraising project of Women of the Church is the Annual Bazaar and Quilt Raffle. It is the group’s policy to share half of the profits from this event with outside missions; the remaining profits are used to fill a need within our church.

Throughout the year, Women of the Church participate in other fundraising opportunities as they arise.

The Quilters & God’s Handi-Workers

A subgroup of Women of the Church is The Quilters. They meet every Monday from 10::00 AM – 1:00 PM.   Another subgroup is Crafters and they meet every Tuesday from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. They invite anyone who likes to quilt or craft, or would like to learn the craft, to come to the quilting room and join them.
