Women's Union


The Hillcrest Women's Union was organized in 1912.  Throughout its history, the Women's Union has worked to support the church and community, to educate congregates about their faith, and to raise awareness of areas of need worldwide.

All interested congregants are welcome to attend the meetings.  Women's Union meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 1:00 p.m. from September through May.  Hostesses are responsible for presenting a devotion and supplying refreshments.  The meetings consist of a brief business meeting and an educational program.  The programs are currently featuring videos and discussions focusing on the apostle Paul.

The Women's Union supplies the Coffee Hour refreshments following worship.  The refreshment donors are responsible for making coffee for the Sunday worship service and for cleaning up afterward.  During the Union's summer hiatus, other members of the congregation are invited to supply refreshments for the Coffee Hour.

Each year the Women's Union holds a two-day rummage sale in the early spring.  These sales serve as not only a fundraiser but also a community outreach with deeply discounted prices on the second day.

Each Advent Season, as part of "greening" the church, the Women's Union decorates a Chrismon Tree.  Chrismons are Christmas decorations made with Christian symbols.  All the handcrafted Chrismons for the tree were made by members of the Women's Union.  Many of these decorations are created using needlepoint or crochet.

As needed, the Women's Union organizes receptions for memorial services, donates funds to other charitable organizations in the community, and gives financial assistance to the church through providing cleaning supplies, donating memorial gifts, and contributing money to church projects.
