- Women's Ministry
Sunnyside’s Women's Ministry exists to bring women into greater fellowship both with each other and with Jesus Christ through Bible study and women’s events. Our goal is to bring women of all ages together for multigenerational growth and fellowship.
We generally hold women’s Bible studies twice a year, in spring and in fall.
The first Saturday of each month allows for a morning opportunity to gather together and simply pray.
Each year, a group of women attend a Prayer Sister Christmas party, at which they are given a “sister” to secretly pray over for the upcoming year. The Christmas party is where secret Prayer Sisters are revealed. Any woman at Sunnyside can participate.
In addition, the Women’s Fellowship Committee hosts annual events such as the Ladies’ Spring Banquet and Ladies’ Holiday Brunch. In the past the committee also has held a lunch to honor our church senior citizens and a Valentine’s banquet for our church widows and widowers. This year the committee will recognize Sunday School teachers within the children’s and youth departments with an appreciation luncheon.
The Women’s Fellowship Committee also works closely to assist Elizabethton’s TLC Community Center by organizing “sandwich makers” – volunteers from within our youth department or Sunday School classes. After sandwiches are made, the meals are delivered to TLC for children in that area who normally rely on nourishment from school lunches.
We also sporadically offer sign-ups to attend Christian women’s conferences regionally.
