Our Women's Ministries at St. Andrew's fall under the umbrella of The Presbyterian Women, a national women's group in all Presbyterian churches. Our purpose is to grow in our knowledge of Christ and our personal relationship with Him so that we may fulfill our Christian responsibilities in our family, our congregation, our community and throughout the world.
Officers of our Presbyterian Women for 2013 include: Margaret Caddy, Moderator; Patsy Yeager, Moderator ELect; Florine Carr, Treasurer; Sidair Boeker, Historian; Gayle Chapman, Secretary; Judy Bristol, Local and World Mission; Ann Migliore, Leadership and Nominating; Carolyn Blakley, Bereavement; Nancy Donaldson, Communications; Linda Ludwick, Older Children of God Coordinator; Charlene Kern, Special Projects; and Betty Smith, Flower Coordinator. Please contact any one of them for more information about our women's ministry.
All women of St. Andrew's, members and visitors, are invited to join us for any event. We have Bible studies, prayer groups, all kinds of programs and activities for all ages to enjoy. These groups, some of which we call "Circles" and others by their name, meet weekly or monthly during the fall and spring, some during the day and some in the evenings. About once a month we all get together for a fun trip or a service project. A few times a year we have a "women only" dinner and game night. Each summer in July we have a book study and craft project. We also offer a Beth Moore video series and study each summer.
Childcare is available for all events with a three-day advance reservation. Please contact our children's ministry director Kelly Lewis.

This group of committed prayer warriors is a group of women who have been meeting together for years and are committed not only to each other, but to working together for the community of faith through prayer. In lifting up the body of Christ in prayer, these women make a point to go through the church directory and pray for different members each week, throughout the week. Their prayers follow the ACTS model of prayer (hence their name), a model that encourages the believer to pray in: Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication.
A - Adoration: Proclaiming Who God is and the attributes of His character
C - Confession: Personal cleansing/ repentance, putting on Christ's nature
T - Thanksgiving: Praise offering, remembering the works of the Lord, meditation
S - Supplication: Asking, intercession, and petitioning according to His will
Anyone who has a passion for intercession is invited to join this group of women. For meeting dates, location, and time, please contact Ann Migliore or Beth Morgan.
This summer, Jo Mullendore will be leading our annual SUmmer Study and Craft, a three- week opportunity to discuss a Christian book and to make a craft item for our homebound Older Children of God. This year, our craft will be angels made of white cotton work gloves.
Class will meet July 11, 18 & 25. The first two meetings will be in room 216 and the third meeting will be in the family center. Class is from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm so bring your lunch!
We will be studying the book Small Things With Great Love by Margot Starbuck.
