Women’s Ministries

Cultivating Faith Through Friendships, Bible Study, Retreats, and Special Events

Ladies, we have something for everyone here at Bethesda! Browse our Women’s Ministries to find something for you. Whether you wish to be a part of a smaller circle group, or have a special talent you would like to contribute to one of our Interest Groups, we would be happy to have you. For dates and times, view the full calendar. 

Creative Crafts Class #1

Christmas Quilted Table Runner – The finished product will be a quilted Christmas block table runner! We’ll meet once a month on a Monday night (TBD) through November, 7:00pm – 9:00pm, at the church. The classes are taught by professional quilter, Susan Edwards, mother of Stacey Bounds. The only cost is for materials & supplies. Note: Each person should be familiar with their machine and each machine needs to have 1/4 inch foot or guide. Please sign up in the entryway or call Susan Edwards or Diane Bounds.

Creative Crafts Class #2

Christmas in July! – This event will have an emphasis on Christmas crafting and also gifts for Christmas. An additional goal is to provide ladies with craft options that they can continue to participate with making items to sell for Bethesda’s 2nd Annual Holiday Bazaar in November.

Our Creative Crafts Class is Saturday, July 21st, 9:00am to 5:00pm. Our Women’s Ministry team will serve coffee and goodies at 9:00am and for lunch we are asking ladies to bring a sack lunch. Coffee and drinks will be provided. We will have electives once again, with two sessions to choose from! One of the wood projects will be something similar to a Flower Garden box. We’ll also offer a Christmas card making class, a Christmas tags class, and a class with various creative treat holders.

Look for sign up forms in the entryway and for more information to come! Contact Diane Bounds for more information!
