WOMEN IN THE WORD

Women In The Word meets weekly during the fall and spring semesters to study God’s Word and build relationships. We have studies happening on Thursdays in the mornings as well as an evening option as well as special events sprinkled throughout the year.

We are excited to announce our Fall Bible Study The Word of the Lord: Seeing Jesus in the Prophets, by Nancy Guthrie. Our fall kickoff is happening on Thursday, September 9 in the Compass Great Room.

Women in the Word provides a place for women to study God's Word in community as we break into small groups where women encourage and pray for one another. Participants are asked to purchase their own copy of the book and read the first chapter before attending on September 9.

THREADED HEARTS

The Threaded Hearts Quilters meets the second Tuesday of each month during the school year, from 11:30am to 3:30pm. Each meeting begins with prayer, followed by a sack luncheon, quilting instruction, and then piecing quilt tops. They focus on intergenerational fellowship while they make love quilts for those in the Compass Church body who are struggling with hardship, illness, the death of a loved one, or perhaps to honor someone who has long served at Compass Church.

Join us for the first meeting of the new semester on Tuesday, September 14 at 11:30am!

PIECEMAKERS

Piecemakers is an intergenerational group of women who come together to provide prayer and practical support for our sister Evangelical Free Churches in DRC (Congo), Africa with an emphasis on serving widows, orphans, and children through the ReachGlobal ministries of the EFCA.  Piecemakers is a place where women of all ages can gather for friendship and encouragement and a unique "hands on" experience as they work together to make sewing kits, girls' hygiene kits, layettes for newborns, and hospital supplies (bandages and dressings).  Wednesday September 8, 2021 will be the first Piecemakers gathering of this semester. The group meets on the first Wednesday of each month from 9:30am to 12:00pm.

Upcoming Craft Show
Piecemakers plans to have a booth in the Community Methodist Craft Show on November 6 to raise funds for sending the hospital supplies we make to the Congo. If anyone in the congregation has craft items they have made over the past year to donate for selling at our booth, please email Carole Madsen (cmm83163@gmail.com) or June Nelson (june.nelson71@gmail.com) by October 31.

All groups enjoy great fellowship and learn new skills. All groups are open to women in the community.
