Every Monday (except when specified) we meet at 9:30 a.m. for prayer and then at 10:00 for Bible study.  After the Bible study we work on ornaments for the Christmas tree for Hospice Festival of Trees.  When we complete the ornaments, we will be wrapping the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes to have them ready for our packing day.

In addition, the women facilitate church-wide events under the direction of the church leadership.  These activities are opportunities to get to know each other, build relationships, and enjoy one another.

  • Monthly fellowship potluck lunches
  • Decorate the church for holidays and special events

The women of Oconee Church are also responsible for both the church kitchen and the nursery.
