RCC Women’s Ministries strive to bring women of all ages together to mentor, fellowship and to provide support for each other.
Christian Women’s Fellowship
CWF is a senior women’s ministry. Their ministry is to honor the Lord in service to the church, the community and to world missions. Monthly meetings are the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 1:30 PM. Activities include the support of the local food pantry, a card ministry, F.A.M.E., mission speakers, Appalachian Christian Ministry, and Samaritan’s Purse gift boxes. Ladies of CWF and Women of Service cooperate in preparation of bereavements dinners, assistance with baptisms, maintenance of the kitchen and monetary contributions as needed to the church body.
Women of Service
Our mission is to be of service to the church, to maintain outreach to members of the church, and to provide opportunity for Christian fellowship and personal growth in their faith. Women of Service is Christ-centered and serves through the love of God. Currently, the ladies meet the second Saturday of each month for breakfast (unless another activity is planned). Meetings are held at the church Fellowship Hall at 8:30 AM. Activities of the group are baptismal duties, working with the Christian Women’s Fellowship on Bereavement Committee, sending care packages to college students, women’s day activities such as our Annual Women’s Retreat, assisting the church body wherever needed, the Christmas Giving Tree for children of Parke County and sponsoring a Day Mission Trip or two to F.A.M.E. headquarters in Indianapolis. All women are invited to attend and become involved in this ministry.
Women of Purpose
Women of Purpose is a Bible study group that meets every Monday (during the school year) from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Women of Purpose has been in existence for about 16 years. Originally called “Mothering Matters,” the group was founded for young mothers to gather and get into God’s Word and to be a support for each other. As our children grew, so did we. Our group has changed from young mothers to women of all ages and several church backgrounds. Our purpose is still the same – to study God’s Word and to provide support for each other. Our group has definitely diversified and we invite all ladies to join us.
We have done numerous studies over the years from topical to studying specific books of the Bible.
Women’s Bible Study
Women of all ages gather on Monday evenings for a time of fellowship, prayer and study (and food!). This Bible Study meets from 6:00 – 8:00 PM, generally at Janet Fahey’s home but occasionally at McVay Chiropractic offices. Sandy Thurman and Tina Jacks lead the group through topic studies, books of the Bible and books by Christian authors. Bring your Bible and a hunger for applying God’s Word and join us!
Women of Faith Conference
For the last several years, we have organized a group of women to attend the nearest Women of Faith Conference. Registration information will be announced as it is available. Visit the Women of Faith website for more information.
