Bethesda Women's Ministries' Mission is to empower women as we nurture our life in Christ through studying the Bible, using our gifts, hearing each other, and engaging in missions and service.  Our vision invites women across generations, cultures and places to share and honor our stories, care for each other and express our prophetic voice boldly as we seek to follow Christ.


"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love."

I Corinthians 13:13

Good News!  BWM evening meetings are back!  December 2019 seems so long ago, and in that time, God has woven a beautiful quilt of all our collective grief and anxiousness, our small delights and contentment, and stitched them together with God's grace.  You have shown God's goodness through your sisterly love and care as you shared coffee on porches, went on walks, baked bread for a neighbor, sent cards and letters, and reached out with phone calls, prayers, and Zoom gatherings.  Come for reflection, laughter, and fellowship.  Masks are encouraged, but not required.  All are welcome!

Bethesda Women's Ministries prayer shawl ministry provides a tangible symbol of Bethesda's love and prayers for those who are hurting, facing health challenges or major life changes.

May each one who recieves a prayer shawl feel the warmth of the prayers from the church.

P.S. We have a large donation of yarn in the BWM material room if you knit or crochet prayer shawls.
