Friendship & Opportunities to Learn

Orenco Church's women's ministry is for all ages and provides opportunities to connect and fellowship with one another, as well as grow in our knowledge and love for God. We typically host special events, although right now they're on hold due to the pandemic.  Examples of past year's events are an annual dinner cooked by the Orenco men, a Christmas gathering, Spring Coffeehouse, Movie Night, and other fun activities!

During the school year, women are invited to join our Sunday morning class at 8:45 am, either in person or on Zoom, where we read a book together and discuss its application to our lives. Our class is talkative and comfortable; everyone is welcome! In summer months, many of us can be found at the same hour, before worship, sharing about our lives, enjoying coffee, and even knitting prayer shawls. 

Fellowship & Mission

Our desire is for all women at Orenco to connect with others, growing in their life with Christ through encouragement, fellowship, and support. Our activities and gatherings vary year by year, but friendship in Christ is at their center.

Many women participate in our Secret Prayer Partner ministry, supporting one another all year with anonymous gifts and notes, as well as in their daily prayers. These women sign up to participate in January, and then discover who has been praying for them at the year’s end with a special party. A similar ministry supports our youth group’s girls in prayer.

Mission partnerships include providing prayer shawls and lap blankets, knitted and crocheted by the women of Orenco Church, to Brighton Hospice for their chaplains to share with patients and with Saving Grace Maternity House.   We also prepare a teacher appreciation treat for the staff of Orenco Elementary School each spring.
