Women's Spirit Rising

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Women’s Spirit Rising (WSR) is a women's faith-based group that began as a traditional Bible study group, and grew from there. Over the years we have expanded our vision to explore the broader subject of spirituality, in the context of supportive friendships, creativity, and service.

We try to meet every month or so when a different member volunteers to lead and/or host our meeting.There are currently 26 women on our mailing list, and all women of the Church are warmly invited to be added and to attend any meetings of interest. Currently, five to twenty women attend a given meeting, depending upon interest in the particular topic or venue.

Meetings at the Church or in one of our homes typically include prayer and meditation. Sometimes we take inspirational field trips. For example:

  • the Metropolitan Museum of Art for their Christmas Creche and Angel tree exhibits
  • The Cloisters for their Medieval artwork and gardens
  • the Rubin Museum of Tibetan Art for special films and speakers

We also try to organize one or two retreats each year and assist with service projects. Click here to learn about our October, 2013 Retreat.

We contribute to Christmas on Round Hill by making items to sell and addressing invitations.

We have also happily polished the Church silver service, cleaned up the Labyrinth and hosted the intimate soup and salad supper for the Ash Wednesday service.

If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please contact the Church Office.
