St. John's United Church of Christ



Women's Ministry

ALL women are encouraged to: DEEPEN their faith, SHARE their talents and knowledge and INCREASE the feeling of SISTERHOOD as they MEET and WORK together in a variety of settings. For over fifty years quilting has been one activity for St. John's women. The current group meets every Tuesday at 9:30 am in the church. Each year they produce a new, unique creation for a raffle at the annual Fall Bazaar. Anyone with quilting skills is warmly welcomed. Two groups meet monthly. Luncheons are held the 2nd Wednesday at 12:30 pm at different locations. Lobby bulletin boards give details and display sign-up sheets. This group participates in Church Women United events especially the Christmas stocking project and the May Friendship Day with other church women of Chambersburg. They reach out to St. John's shut-in members in February with gifts and visits. The second monthly meeting is for breakfast at Bob Evans Restaurant the 3rd Tuesday at 8:30 am. No reservations are needed; simply come and enjoy the food and fellowship. Women who work outside the home can participate in the two largest activities which actually involve men as well as women. In May men cook, serve, and clean-up for the Mother/Daughter Banquet while different ladies each year provide decorations, a program, and prizes. In October men and women help with a flea market, craft sales, and food preparation for the Fall Bazaar. Each Christmas a different lady and her family decorate the tree in the main lobby. "True fellowship combines social and spiritual interaction."

Annual Fall Bazaar - Held in October:  The quilters are hard at work on the next quilt - chance tickets will be available around July.

Monthly Women's Luncheon:  Check the bulletin board in the lobby as well as the Sunday bulletins & Spirit Newsletter for dates/locations.

Quilting:  A small group of women meet Tuesday mornings at 9:30 am to quilt.  They were blessed with a new recruit last month.  Was it you?  This small group has made possible many extra dollars for many extra improvements at St. John's.  This is one avenue any lady may use to enjoy the fellowship of other women.  Fellowship fosters unity.
