Women of the Church hold Circle Meetings once a month and General Meetings twice a year. At the Spring and Fall General Meetings, the women conduct the business at hand and then enjoy a speaker, entertainment or craft project together. In December, the women also gather for a Christmas Dinner and in June a summer picnic.
All confirmed women of Divinity and guests are invited to these activities.
