Frieden's Organizations:

Women's Fellowship

Friedens Church is blessed to have an organization called the Women’s Fellowship. This organization is composed of very dedicated member ranging from age 60 and up, but that does not stop them from supporting the church and coordinating most of the activities of the church. The members are always busy – or as some say; they are the backbone of our church.

The women start off the year by sponsoring the annual Chili/Chicken Stew supper in February, where they participate in preparing the meal to be served that night to the public. In addition to preparing the meal, each lady of the church brings a pie to be served as dessert with the meal. This tradition has been around for many years and is always enjoyed, not only our members, but also individuals from the surrounding communities. Every year on Maundy Thursday the group host a breakfast which is open to everyone. This is a chance to share not only breakfast, but partake in Holy Communion – a very emotional experience and a wonderful way to celebrate the Easter weekend. In May, a covered dish dinner is hosted for those that are being confirmed that year and for young adults that are graduating from high school and college. The organization supports the youth of our church by paying for part of the Slumber Falls camp fee, by cooking and providing food for vacation bible school.

Other activities that these ladies do is support the local food pantries with canned goods and other staples, visit, send cards, provide gifts at Christmas for the sick and shut-ins and have a bake sale in the fall. Several years ago the members started an annual project of making a quilt that is raffled off at their chili/chicken supper. The proceeds from this “mission” project are divided among charitable organizations. It is evident as how hard these ladies work and how much they care for our church – they are truly the “backbone” of Friedens.
