The women of Mt. Airy seek to encourage and support each other as sisters in Christ, and the Women’s Ministry Committee helps to facilitate this. Each month, there is an opportunity for the ladies to get together to participate in a special activity. Past events have included such things as dessert socials, dinners, movie nights, craft nights to learn new skills, and summertime swim parties. All who would like to know more about Mt. Airy women’s ministries are encouraged to contact the church office for more details. All MAPCA women are welcome (and encouraged!) to attend Women’s Ministry Committee meetings, usually held on the third Thursday each month.
The Merry Hearts focus on sewing projects which benefit others, both those in our congregation and also others who are being served by international missionaries and local groups, such as the Frederick Rescue Mission. We meet on the first Saturday of the month, usually at the home of a member. Our ongoing projects include making scarves for men, creating heat-retention cookers to be sent to Honduras, and sewing flannel baby blankets for a crisis pregnancy center. We add new projects on a regular basis and serve the church community by making things to help with church ministries. Our group includes women of all ages, including teens. For more information, contact the church office.
