The Woman's Benevolent Society has been a special presence and ministry since the church's founding in 1809 - more than 200 years ago. Along with practical projects, Woman's Benevolent members are committed to missionary care and zealous prayer. All women are invited to meet on Wednesdays (OCT to MAY) from 10:00AM to 1:30PM to work, enjoy lunch together, and pray for our missionaries and the needs of Park Street, our government and the world.

Some projects:

  • Sending greeting cards to missionaries, shut-ins and congregants.
  • Prepare canceled stamps for the Alliance Stamp Ministry at Shell Point, FL, where they raise funds from the sale of the stamps.  The proceeds are used to publish Sunday School materials in Spanish for 13 Latin American countries, plus Spain and the US.
  • Knitting, crocheting and quilting items for first time mothers, the Thursday Night Outreach Ministry, and missionaries and their children.
  • Turning used Christmas cards into ornaments for Child Evangelism Fellowship, who give them out at “Christmas Parties for Jesus.”
  • Sewing stuffed toys for missionaries to give to children in hospitals and orphanages in the Middle East and Africa.
  • Hosting an annual luncheon during Missions Emphasis Week to thank our missionaries and be inspired by their work.

Please join us and bring your lunch—beverages and dessert are provided.  If you are not able to attend in person but would like to work on projects at home, please let us know!
