Quilting! Fundraising! Bake sales! Boutiques! The Women's Ministry enjoys supporting and celebrating members at Faith and the Chico community, often utilizing their creative talents to do so. (This page is under construction! Keep checking back in to learn more about the Women's Ministry!)
The quilters, led by Char Miller, ordinarily meet weekly on Tuesdays at 9am to noon in the Parish Hall, though they are not meeting during quarantine. However, the quilters are currently busy making masks from their own homes to distribute safely to folks who attend live worship on Sundays, along with others in the community needing masks. People of all levels of quilting/sewing abilities are invited to join!
While the Women's Ministry organizes these bake sales and does indeed bake many treats, everyone at church is invited to donate items! The money raised from these events goes to fund scholarships for high school, trade school, or college. The money is also used to purchase parantransit tickets so folks without a means to get to church can do so.
The women of Faith set aside small amounts of money throughout the year as is tradition, and in November, bring their donations together. Quilts are also put on display, and in lieu of Pastor Ben, a woman is chosen to preach.
