United Church of Christ
Seeking to walk in the Way of Jesus, we are an Open and Affirming church, faithfully using what we have and who we are to serve those on the margins of our community. No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!
Some women were with him: Mary, called Magdalene, and Joanna, the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for them out of their resources. - Luke 8:2-3
Our Women's Fellowship enjoys being community, building community, learning new things, and having a lot of fun along the Way. Interested? Contact Regina Oliver, who leads this faithful crew, if you are interested in learning more.
