Current Activities of the Women’s Ministry

Through the Year….

* We celebrate God's love everyday, but February is the month we take special notice. Our annual Valentine Banquet is a great time for couples and singles alike to enjoy the love of Christ through food and fellowship.

* Because Easter Sunday is worthy of special planning, we share in a great Sunday Worship service followed by a fellowship dinner.

* May and June are important months to remember our Mothers and Fathers of the congregation. The Women's Ministry enjoys planning special ways to honor them.

* The fall season is the time that Chapel women help to plan and attend The South Central Texas Women's Retreat usually scheduled in late October or early November. It features a guest speaker and the fellowship of many area churches; it is a two day retreat held at an area hotel/conference center.

* The Secret Sister Program kicks off each December after the reveal from the prior year.. This is a fun-filled year of prayer, love, encouragement and surprises.
The reveal

* The Sunday before Thanksgiving, we host our annual Love Feast in the Fellowship Hall following Morning Worship.
We love our deserts!

* At Christmas time, the Women's Ministry reviews the need for an outreach project which supports one or more of twelve missionaries. We also provide refreshments following our Children's Christmas Program.

* Once each quarter an area church hosts the Area Ladies Fellowship. The Chapel hosts this event in a rotating schedule and everyone enjoys food, fellowship and a specifically planned worship service for women.
It was a western theme this year.

* Every Spring there is a theme women's retreat at the church.

* Behind the Scenes Ministries...The women regularly provide bread to welcome our visitors, organize Sunday morning greeters, prepare and clean up communion, keep the pantry stocked, maintain the library, send cards & flowers to those living alone  or ill, prepare meals for those in need, and maintain the church prayer line.

* The Nursery for Sunday School and Morning Worship is staffed by volunteers and is organized through the Women's Ministry.

* We also have the pleasure of organizing bridal and baby showers to celebrate the occasions.

* The Women's Ministry plans a special reception for women of each new family who have been recently attending the worship services. The purpose is to get better acquainted and give spiritual encouragement.

* The Women's Ministry is actively involved in the planning and facilitating of our annual Vacation Bible School each summer.
