Women's Day

The Women of the Church will join together for a special time of fellowship and discussion during the scheduled lunch on Friday. After eating some wonderful BBQ at noon, the women will meet in the sanctuary until 2pm. This year's theme for the Reformed Episcopal Women of the Church is "Rejoice in the Lord always" (Philippians 4:4). The REC Women's project is to raise $7,500 to assist in the publication of The Handbook for the Visitation of the Sick.

Those attending just the Women's Day lunch & program will be charged $25 to cover the costs of lunch and Women's Day. Those who are registering for the full Synod already have this built into their registration fee.

You can register for Women's Day through the same Registration System for Synod.
