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 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.
The Women's Group meetings are held from 1:00pm to 2:30pm on the second Wednesday of each month, September to June. In past years, each month we began by eating lunch together, followed by a devotional and discussion or activity to go along with it. Activities we have enjoyed include preparing for bake sales, supporting the Pumpkin Patch, cooking demonstrations at individual homes, movie decorating Easter hats, tea parties, knitting prayer shawls and making prayer beads, praying together, enjoying an end-of-the-year luncheon, and visiting congregation members at Arden House.
Because the women who attended this summer’s Seaside Escape retreat enjoyed it so much, this year we decided to use WonderFull World retreat materials as a year-long theme for our meetings. We will be visiting a different continent each month, so pack your bags and join us for a journey filled with laughter, Bible study and reflection.

In addition to our regular meetings, we also enjoy monthly special activities. We have attended movies together, gone to the Gingerbread Village in Middlebury, picked apples at Lyman's Orchards, enjoyed the beautiful roses at Hamden's Pardee Rose Gardens and the ice cream flavors created for us at 0 Degree in Middletown, and much more.
