The purpose of the Ladies' Fellowship is to serve the ladies of TCC through prayer, encouragement, discipleship and fellowship through various events and activities, so that we can become true friends and sisters in the Lord, in fervent communication with Jesus Christ, ultimately striving to be a fruitful witness and servant in the furthering of God's kingdom here on earth. As the Ladies' Fellowship Committee we are a servant group concerned about the women of our congregation; intent on the Biblical command to hospitality; the social engine that connects the women of our church; necessary because our Christian faith is relational.
The Committee meets monthly to review the needs of the women of Troy Christian Chapel and plan activities that will encourage fellowship and growth in Christ including Showers. Contacts: Diane Muller (Chairman), Barb Galbreath (Secretary), Judie Teasel (Treasurer), Dawn Torres (Pastoral Presence) and Bev TerMarsch.
This Bible study group meets every other Thursday evening from September through May. Created to accommodate daytime work schedules, the Lydia Group is composed of women of varied career backgrounds—including stay-at-home moms—who relish digging deep into God's word. We have done topical studies, book studies, and expository verse-by-verse studies of specific books of the Bible. We learn together, pray together and share each other's joys and burdens. Contacts: Linda Kuhn, Sharon Enright and Lee Ann Thal.
W.IN.G.S. (Women in God's Scripture)
This ladies' Bible study meets every Tuesday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. We have a diverse group consisting of single women, new moms, mid-lifers, as well as grandmothers. This allows for a wonderful discussion among the ladies, each with different insights. We write down our prayer requests and pray for these throughout the week and then discuss how these prayers have been answered! We do a variety of studies that help us grow in our Christian walk and help us discern God's voice so that we can do His will. Contacts: Sharon Enright and Diane Muller.
The Prayer Chain offers all those with prayer needs a means to have collective prayer on their behalf. It is made up of individuals who have made a commitment to pray for the needs of others. Any need, however big or small, is welcome. We believe in the power of prayer and have seen how it can change lives when Christ is at the center. Please contact the church office with any prayer requests you may have. The Prayer Chain falls under both Women's Ministries and the Barnabas Ministry, so both men and women are invited to participate. Contacts: Sandy Bamsey and Carol McCartney.
This ministry provides the women of Troy Christian Chapel with an opportunity to honor first-time moms and brides-to-be and to celebrate with them their new role in life. Showers, with gifts and dessert, are held in the Fellowship Hall. All the women of the congregation are welcome to attend, as are friends and family of the guest of honor. Contact: Diane Muller.
The Meals Ministry delivers meals to families who are in need because of the birth of a new baby or due to illness or death. Those who receive the meals know that this ministry is about much more than meals. The love and care that are put into preparing and delivering the meal tell the family receiving it that they are cared about and thought about by their church family. The commitment is flexible and no cooking skills are needed! Families are just as happy to receive carry-out as a home-cooked meal. Contact: Diane Muller.
