Ministering to Women in 2017

Mark your calendars for a variety of exciting events designed just for the ladies during 2017!

Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017, 7:00 pm til ??  – Campfire & Stories:  A time for ladies to pull up a lawn chair, enjoy the campfire and share life’s stories with one another.  Refreshments provided.  This is a perfect opportunity to invite a friend and experience together the casual conversation of sisters-in-Christ.  Share about your summer, talk about answered prayers or how you see that God is alive and active. Or share when you felt distant from God and longed for a renewed connection with Him.  Encourage one another.  Fellowship with one another as one season gives way to another – summer draws to a close and the busyness of the Fall awaits on the horizon.  Plan to join us for the very special end-of-summer event sponsored by Women’s Fellowship of NHCC.

Fall Retreat –  Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017 –  “Sweet Life Cafe”:   This interactive retreat is an experience that allows women to slow down and savor time with God and each other. It feels like a cozy day at your favorite coffee shop—where women can find rest, laugh, share their stories, and grow closer to each other and God.  “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” —John 6:35

   Session 1 – Life is sweet when we trust in God.

   Session 2 – Life is sweet when we make time for friends.

   Session 3 – Life is sweet when we are nourished by Jesus.

   Session 4 – Life is sweet when we savor time with God.

   Session 5 – Life is sweet when we serve others.

   Session 6 – Life is sweet when we share it with others.

Ladies … come … set your cares aside for one day.  Worship the Lord through uplifting music.  Engage in small-group discussions that bring home the sweet life message.  Share in laughter. Savor personal devotional time with God.  Be encouraged to extend sweet love to someone who needs Godly nourishment.  This. Day. Is. For. You!  Reserve it on your calendar, today!

Annual 2510 Christmas Dessert & Coffee – Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017 – Take a break from the shopping, programs and concerts, school festivals and family dinners and enjoy an evening of delicious desserts, fun & fellowship!  This annual dessert night is a favorite of Women’s Fellowship attendees!  Some sort of fun gift exchange provides for laughter and fellowship.  Put Tuesday, Dec. 5 on your 2017 calendar now!


Women’s Fellowship of New Hope Community Church exists to offer events for women of all ages from the church and community to gather together. The purpose of the events is to encourage and enhance Christian fellowship with one another and the Lord.
