The Women’s Association has been an integral part of the ministry of PCCT, offering a place for women at all stages of life to connect with one another through a rich diversity of activities, small groups, and service to the local and global community.
Organized on January 5, 1960 – just a few short weeks after the original 224 charter members of PCCT were voted into membership – the Women’s Association has served the church and the community with the same adventurous spirit and creativity as its first members. Today, the organization continues to host fellowship events, small groups and organize fundraisers to support mission projects and funding for the scholarship.
Some of the favorite traditions are the Cookie Walk and Savory Soup sale in December and Chicken Pot Pie sale in January, the largest fundraisers of the organization. Many hands are needed and welcome to help bake for these community-wide and highly anticipated events. All proceeds go to mission!
Have you wondered what God is calling you to do next? This group of women meets regularly to navigate the next phase of their lives through prayer, fellowship, discussion, and healthy doses of laughter. The group also helps occasionally with church-sponsored mission projects. Meets every other week. Contact church office for more details.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
A group of dedicated women meets monthly to knit beautiful shawls and deliver them to PCCT members and friends in the community in need of a little comfort, be they in the hospital or at home. No prior knitting experience is needed. The group will teach you the “how-to’s!” Monthly meetings in members’ homes (dates and times vary – contact church office for more details).
Marla Drury Memorial Scholarship
Marla had a positive, and generous spirit while serving on many church committees throughout her time here. Her passionate work and leadership as Director of Development and Community Outreach of Morristown Soup Kitchen was her way of selflessly serving a community in need, and she fulfilled this duty with love, true compassion, a fun spirit, and a big smile. The MDMS is a $1,000 scholarship awarded in June to any current HS senior or college student, male or female, who is an active PCCT member who exemplifies the same generous, giving spirit to the community as Marla so graciously did. Women’s Ministries has the funds to support this important scholarship for the next two to three years, but we hope to be able to continue it even longer and would be thrilled to make a lasting impact in honor of Marla. If you would like to celebrate Marla by contributing to the scholarship fund, please make checks payable to PCCT, with MDMS noted in the memo line. Contact the church office for more information.
