Women’s Ministry

St. Paul’s has a Women’s Ministry that serves through small groups, projects, and our affiliation with the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML). The LWML is an international association of women’s groups that supports hundreds of mission projects throughout the world. St. Paul’s is active in raising money and sending delegates to local and national LWML gatherings.

St. Paul’s Women’s Ministry’s projects include the church’s spring rummage sale and Christmas Craft and Bake Sale, with additional projects organized throughout the year based on need. Small groups are formed to address specific needs. One group is the Priscilla Circle, which meets at 9:30 a.m. on the first Wednesday of the month to make crafts, such as teddy bears to donate to Fair Oaks Hospital. Another group, the Altar Guild, sets up and maintains the altar area for worship. 

LWML workdays are from 9:00 a.m. to noon on the first Saturday of each month. The projects vary by month but all workdays offer coffee, conversation and good fellowship.

The 2014 LWML Chesapeake District Convention will be held in Richmond, VA from Friday, September 26, 2014 to Sunday, September 28, 2014.  The theme will be “Quenched by the Water of Life” and is based on John 4:14.
