Second Wednesday Women's Group

September 2022 - June 2023

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 nursery from 1:00pm to 2:30pm on the second Wednesday of each month, September to June. We begin our monthly meeting by enjoying the fellowship of eating lunch together, followed by a devotional and discussion or activity to go along with it.  Our theme for this year is Women of the Bible, including some of the Bad Girls of the Bible. We will use scripture readings, skits and discussion to look at the lives of these biblical women and how we can apply the lessons we learn from them to our own lives.  Our service projects this year will be "Women Caring for Women," the women in the group caring for women in the congregation.


If you have any questions, need transportation or further information, please contact Holly O'Brien at or (203) 506-4822.

October Meeting

The Second Wednesday Women’s Group meeting was, quite appropriately, based on the story of the Woman of Endor (I Samuel 28:3-25). Our faith lesson for this story focused on King Saul’s disobedience by consulting a medium for his answers, showing his lack of trust when he felt God was not answering him: How often do we try to take things in our own hands when we feel  God is not answering our prayers?  Because HJPUMC is known as The Pumpkin Church, of course, we had pumpkin pie for dessert.  November’s meeting will be a shared Thanksgiving Day feast.  All are welcome for this special meeting of the Women’s Group.
