Women of Galilee Ministries

The Women of Galilee Ministries (WOGM) is a vibrant ministry encompassing a myriad of activities to make our church strong and welcoming. They enjoy faith and fellowship through the Holiday Bazaar, the women's Circles and the Women’s Retreat. Always generous with their time and talent, the Women of Galilee, backed by Galilee Gifts & Books, continue their tradition of unwavering support to our parish family.


Thursday Morning Women’s Bible Study

This large group of women meets Thursdays at 9:30am for worship, prayer, Bible study, small groups and fellowship. Childcare and a special program for children are provided.


Flower Guild

Every week the Flower Guild adds beauty to our facility and enhances our worship. Members rotate through a schedule to arrange flowers and greens for the Main Altar, St. Andrew’s Chapel and St. Luke’s Chapel. We cut from our gardens and purchase flowers for the weekly arrangements as well as for weddings, funerals, Christmas, Easter and special occasions. In our effort to be good conservators of resources, we make use of our beautiful Rose Garden seasonally for the Main Altar. We also deliver flowers to our ill and shut-in parishioners. Dozens of capable and devoted members graciously and freely give their time and talents toward beautifying Galilee Church for the glory of God.


Galilee Circles

Four women’s groups meet monthly for Bible study, fellowship and planning for special events: the Alice Rueger Circle (contact: Jane Denman); the Bishop Tucker Circle (contact: Ivy Carey); and the Roxann Jordan Circle (contact: Mary Folck).


February 2-3, 2019

Hilton Garden Inn

Kitty Hawk, North Carolina

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT? 

Our theme this year is “Trusting in the Holy Spirit’s Love: the Blessings and Challenges of Walking by Faith.” In a world full of uncertainty, it’s so wonderful to know that we trust in a great God, who makes Himself known to us through His Holy Spirit. But what does this look like? And how can we take hold of these truths in a meaningful, concrete way? We’ll learn so much more about that this weekend!

 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The cost is $135 for the retreat and $122 for the hotel room.  You can register for the retreat through this website or through a paper sign-up at church.  Hotel reservations need to be made separately by contacting the Hilton Garden Inn online or by calling 252-261-1290. THE CHEAPER RATE EXPIRES ON JANUARY 14, SO RESERVE YOUR ROOM ASAP! YOU CAN ALWAYS CANCEL YOUR ROOM WITHIN A FEW DAYS OF THE RETREAT IF SOMETHING CHANGES.

 

WHO IS THE SPEAKER? 

LUCY PEPPIATT, Phd. who is a principal at Westminster Theological Centre in England. She provides a depth and warmth to her teaching, and we’re so excited to hear her insights. We’re all going to love her and her teachings.

 

I CAN ONLY COME FOR A LITTLE WHILE AND CAN’T SPEND THE NIGHT. IS IT WORTH GOING? 

YES!! The program starts Saturday morning around 10, and it’s about 1 1/2 hours to Kitty Hawk, so you can go down on Saturday morning, hear a talk, have lunch, hear another talk, and be home by late afternoon if you have a tight schedule. Likewise, if you can’t come until Saturday afternoon, you can enjoy the evening program and a great talk Sunday morning, so that’s worth it, too. 

 

WILL THERE BE MUSIC?

YES!!  We’re going to have a fresh and new worship team leading us this weekend who will help to usher us into the presence of God. It’s going to be great! 

 

I AM NEW TO THE CHURCH. WILL I FEEL REALLY AWKWARD IF I COME? 

I’ve been at the church for years, and I feel really awkward all the time, so you’re in good company! In all seriousness, this retreat is a wonderful way to make new friendships and to strengthen older ones. It’s a fantastic way to build relationships, and to connect to this wonderful community. Even if this is stepping outside your comfort zone, you’ll be glad you did! 

 

MY DAUGHTER/FRIEND/NEIGHBOR DOESN’T GO TO GALILEE. CAN SHE COME ON THE RETREAT?

YES!! The more, the merrier. Women of all ages, from teens into the later years, will enjoy the retreat. 


Discover God's truths. Refresh your soul. Build lifelong friendships. 


The Women of Galilee Bible study is a vibrant, inter-generational community where we meet each Thursday morning at 9:30 am to study God's word together. Through teachings, fellowship, small groups, and prayer, we seek to develop stronger relationships with God and one another. Gourmet coffee from Fathom Coffee Roasters and free childcare are also provided from 9am-noon.
