Second Wednesday Women's Group
The Women’s Group was formed in 2011 with much preparation and prayer. The goal for the group is to develop Christian
maturity through fellowship, devotionals, and service to our Lord. We invite women of all ages to our group; it is not necessary to be part of the congregation of HPUMC.
Meetings are held in the church from 1:00pm to 2:30pm on the second Wednesday of each month, September to June. In past years, we began our monthly meeting by eating lunch together, followed by a devotional and discussion or activity to go along with it. The only difference in our meetings this year is that we are following HPUMC's Protocols for Small Group Meetings During the Pandemic by wearing masks and meeting without food or beverages.
If you have any questions, need transportation or further information, please contact Holly O'Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org or (203) 506-4822.
The theme for the Second Wednesday Women’s Group February/Valentine’s Day meeting was God is Love. Holly began the meeting with a devotional based on Corinthians 13:4-7: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." The devotional spoke about the thought that we put into selecting the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, but that the only perfect gift is God's love. It went on to ask a question that led the group into discussion: “What aspect of love are your strengths and what are your weaknesses?” When Marion read this Corinthians passage in the contemporary language of The Message, we all quickly agreed how difficult it is to live a life of love as dictated by the scriptures. The devotional’s ending prayer led to this month’s service project of writing cards and putting together Valentine packages for the homebound: “Ask God to show you practical ways you demonstrate His perfect love to others on a daily basis.” Of course, no meeting is complete without a good portion of fellowship and laughter, both of which were shared as we used straws to pick up hearts and drop them into plastic cups. Shouts of “God is love” could be heard when each of the women accomplished the task. As always, we invite all women of the church to join us for our meetings of fellowship, spiritual growth, and service: The second Wednesday of each month in the Nursery at 1:00pm.
