WOMEN OF THE ELCA
 
The women’s ministry revolves around three areas of “mission”:
 

MISSION COMMUNITY
To enable each woman to value herself and others as created in God’s image and redeemed through Christ; and to build up and celebrate relationships which are global, diverse and interdependent.

MISSION GROWTH
To provide a variety of learning experiences which strengthen each woman as a whole person, develop her potential and equip her for ministry.

MISSION ACTION
To enable women to articulate and act upon their faith as disciples of Christ in all areas of life.
 
 
 
 
Quilting Ministry 
It is a perfect time to think about joining a small group of dedicated quilters who continue their mission to provide quilts to those in need oversees, in portions of the United States and locally as well.  No experience is necessary.  The group quilts each Wednesday during September – May from 9:30-11:30 am in the Fireside Room at St. Andrew’s.  Quilting and conversation and eating tasty goodies and drinking coffee – what a way to meet other women and to engage in some meaningful service.  The quilting group will resume meeting in September from 9:30-11:30 am.  All women are invited to join the group.
