Women of the Community
The Women of Community, or WOC, meet the third Tuesday of each month, at 10:00 in the morning, for Bible study and fellowship. Although we usually meet at the church, we do occasionally meet at someone’s home. We also gather on the first Tuesday of each month to clean the church and, on the last Tuesday, to plan our future studies and ministries. Our ministries include a birthday party in November for residents of Countryside Manor, food collection for Good Samaritan Ministries of Stokesdale, participating in the Backpack Ministry of Oak Ridge, Summerfield and Stokesdale, a yard sale in the spring, financial assistance for Emmanuel, a student in Rwanda, as well as many other mission support ministries. Proceeds from the spring yard sale are equally divided between the Good Samaritan Ministries of Stokesdale and the Backpack Ministry of Oak Ridge, Summerfield and Stokesdale, both of which work to alleviate hunger. We also have shared summer day retreats at Belews Lake, birthday celebrations, and luncheons at Christmas. All women are invited to join us in our studies, ministries and fellowship.
