Submit a Fellowship idea that worked for your women's group.
Here are some ideas that have worked for other groups:
"South of the Border" (Lancaster, PA)
We recently had a "South of the Border" evening for the ladies and teens of our church. We had a Taco Bar and
some ethnic desserts from the South American Countries. We decorated with Spanich items. One girl prayed for the
evening in Spanish and we sang Spanish choruses. Our Eastern District missionary to Ecuador shared about her
work with the upper class women of Guayaquil. It was a great evening!

A Bit of Pampering
Pamper Yourself was a big hit with our ladies. We had an afternoon of relaxation and fun at one of the ladies' homes
in which we had foot soaks, pedicures, hand wax soak, manicures, facial massage, back rubs, background music, and
refreshments. They all loved it and are planning for one next year.

An Encouraging Way to Collect for the Outfit Fund (Peoples Church in Geneva, Ohio)
We do not receive money from the church to run our program, and we want to be able to support our District Outfit fund.
We have 4 traveling baskets going around the church with 15 ladies names listed on each card in the basket. We are
having a contest to see which basket canget back to the starting lady first. We hvae a gift (like napkins and a
candle, a book that suits that woman, or homemade goodies, etc.) We do not ask that they spend a lot of money, but
give of their love to the next lady. In this basket is also a jar for offering. The offering goes for the Outfit Fund
for our missionaries. We have extra money for our fund and are able to do a few extras.

Sew-a-thon for Mali (Peoples Church in Geneva, Ohio)
We had a Sew-a-thon for Mali in the Fall. For 12 hours, ladies, girls, teens, young and old and even guys helped us sew,
rip and roll bandages. We also sewed blankets, drape sheets, surgical masks, and other items that were needed for the
new Mali Hospital in Koutiala. For some of our teens, it was the first time they ever used a sewing machine. It was a
special time and the church people are asking for another day to sew for Mali. Everyone who helped that day feel like
they are a part of Mali now.

Fellowship Through Bible Study (Article from 2003-2004 Yearbook, Adjust Your Focus)
By providing a comfortable small group setting, women can not only explore God's Word together,
but they can bond in a supportive way to encourage each other. This year we especially want to
grow in the area of becoming women of virtue. Although the following bibliography is not exhaustive,
it suggests several Bible studies that will further expand some of the values and virtues to be attained
as believers. (See full article.)
