Women’s chapters are an important part of the life of our parish as members of the group offer support to one another in times of crisis, celebrate with one another in times of joy and generally help each other through the ebb and flow of life. They are a great way to get to know members of the parish that you may not otherwise have encountered and form community in the midst of our larger parish community. Many of the women’s chapters are broken down into age groups or categories but not all. Take a look at the chapters that gather for fellowship here at All Saints’ and find one that suits you.
Third Mondays, 11:00 a.m.
These women in their 70s and 80s, many of whom have been meeting since the end of World War II, share ideas and problems, study together, and render church-related service. Speakers on community and religious issues are engaged for the monthly meetings.
First Tuesdays, 7:00 p.m.
Composed of women of every age and stage of life, this chapter was formed for fellowship and community service, primarily through existing parish ministries.
Fourth Tuesdays, 7:00 p.m.
This chapter, whose members are forty and up, is a varied one. Some work and others are retired. Meetings are held monthly September through May with a break in December. Making and selling our famous Hell Fire Pepper Jelly is one of the year’s highlights. Proceeds from jelly sales benefit projects focused on women and children in need.
Last Tuesdays, 4:30 p.m.
Women with grown children and grandchildren gather for fellowship and service to the parish. Among their most recent gifts to All Saints’ are the St. Joan stained glass window and the needlepoint kneelers in the chapel.
Second Tuesdays, 7:30 p.m.
St. Luke Chapter was established 1967. Our members range in age from late sixties to early eighties. Our program year includes six educational daytime meetings and three social events. Mutual support is an important part of our life together. We welcome new members.
St. Mary’s Chapter is comprised mostly of mothers in their 40s and 50s. Founded in 1990 as the “Young Mothers” group we have laughed and cried our way through our childrearing years. Our purpose continues to be to support each other and develop new and lasting friendships within the church. We typically have 4-5 events per year and they range from guest speakers to wine tasting parties. We welcome new and returning members alike!
The young women of our newest chapter are typically in the age range of 25-39. The chapter is planning to meet together to plan volunteer projects, gather for monthly fellowship and informal programs, and ultimately to find camaraderie with one another through their common interests of young professionals, young singles and young married folks, and young parents. The group will plan to meet simply to relax and enjoy one another’s company during this busy time of life.
