Women's Ministries

Women’s Ministries at Calvary Church are uniquely designed for women of all ages.  Our goal is to promote spiritual reproduction and growth, fostered through a climate of acceptance and provide for personal growth and encouragement through planned programs of Bible studies, focused activities, mentoring, leadership training, and prayer.

Women's Ministries include:

Tuesday Bible Study

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
Prayer Shawl Ministry Prayer shawls were started in 1988 by Janet Bristow and Victoria Galo. They combine caring and the love of knitting into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort. The knitter begins each shawl with prayers for the recipient. This is continued during the entire time of the construction of the shawl. When completed a group will pray for the recipient. The shawl is given to the recipient and a blessing given.  Who would receive these shawls? Whoever God leads us to give them to. These can be people with severe illness, cancer, loss of a loved one, or personal problems that prayer and caring would help. In time we may be able to give to other causes like birth of a child, weddings, graduations, and baptism.  Who is welcome to join us? Anyone who knits, crochets, sews or weaves. Anyone who would like to learn to knit or crochet. Anyone who would like to be a part of a prayer ministry. Anyone who would like to donate yarn to our group. Everyone who will pray for us and the people God asks us to pray and care for.

Missionary Sewing Guild   We meet to sew, quilt, knit, and crochet for our missionaries and their needs, as well as for Plumstead Christian School and a Pregnancy Counseling Center. The work of our hands extends to show God's love to others. We meet the 2nd Wednesday of each month, September through May

Umbrella of Prayer  If you are interested in praying for Women's Ministries, we would like to add your name to our mailing list. The Prayer Coordinator will mail you a monthly prayer and praise letter which will help you pray effectively for the various activities and programs.
