Living Out Our Vision
With each event, we don’t want to approach our ministry simply as consumers, but instead coming together to serve and help other women as well. Here are some of the ways we will care for others in our community.
Christmas Craft Morning: We will be creating hampers for women at the Pregnancy Care Centre – meaning we will supply essentials to help mothers in need and place them in a hamper for delivery.
Women’s Retreat: We will be caring for Seniors by visiting women in homes who are not able to travel during the winter season. We will bring gifts and care packages as we visit them.
Book Club Wind Up: We will be supporting women in hospice care, visiting and seeking to find things that they need.
