St. Andrew’s Women’s Guild enjoys a long and rich history. It began as the Ladies Aid Society in 1837, and changed its name to the Women’s Guild in 1930. Of course, even long before that date, women were serving the church by raising money, helping within the church and reaching out into the community to support local charities, just as the Guild continues to do today. All women of St. Andrew’s are considered members of the Guild, but it is currently a group of 15-20 which meets regularly on the first Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m.
We welcome and encourage more women to come and join us throughout the year. We raise money through a Spring and Fall Rummage Sale and through our Scottish Tea and Christmas Bazaar held every November. For these events we rely on support and participation from the entire congregation, including the men! The money earned is distributed to local charities with an emphasis on helping women and children in need, as well as being used to support the life of St. Andrew’s by, for example, providing the flowers in the sanctuary each Sunday when none have been donated, and paying the salary of a child care worker in the nursery each Sunday. Our monthly business meetings are followed by lunch and time to socialize . Please join us!
