PARENT’S MORNING OUT
Parent’s Morning Out meets year-round, except for the month of August, on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., Parent’s Morning Out is a long-standing tradition for Brick Church moms, dads, grandparents and their children and grandchildren ages 6 months to 2-1/2 years. This fellowship group is currently taking place online via Zoom. Join us anytime for a morning of giggles, wiggles, rolls and jumps, as parents and grandparents and babies and toddlers meet each other and develop lifelong friendships. This is a great program to share experiences and create new friendships. If interested, contact the Women’s Association office.
FELLOWSHIP EVENTS COMMITTEE
The Women’s Association Fellowship Events Committee is responsible for overseeing the fellowship events that the WA sponsors for the Church congregation. They are listed below. If you are interested in volunteering for one or all of these events please contact the Women’s Association office.
a. Fall Fling
The Fall Fling is an annual event that takes place in the garden of the church and welcomes members back to church for the beginning of the new program year. This event, held on a Friday evening in September, depends on the involvement of a large committee. Committee members are asked to help decorate and to bring an hors d’oeuvre, salad, or dessert to the event. The Fall Fling attracts a large attendance of adults from throughout the Brick Church membership.
b. Annual Luncheon and Meeting
The Annual Luncheon immediately follows the Women’s Association Annual Board Meeting and Installation of New Officers and Board Members, which takes place at noon on a weekday in mid-May. The 2021 Women’s Association’s Annual Meeting will take place this year on Wednesday, May 12, at 12 p.m. in the Brick Church Sanctuary. Following the meeting we will have a picnic lunch in the Brick Church Garden. Please bring our own picnic blanket, lunch and beverages and encourage fellow members and friends to join, in what will be a lovely Spring fellowship gathering. Any questions, please contact the Women’s Association Fellowship Events committee, Sarah Blais, Virginia Breen, Eliza McLaughlin, and Marianna Olszewski. Looking forward to seeing you all on May 12!
HELEN WATSON BUCKNER SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Brick Church Women’s Association funds a scholarship program to assist church members and church staff, with financial help for educational purposes. The grants are “quality of life” scholarships, given to help with the cost of items such as books, fees and transportation. All applications will be considered and information is confidential. Grants are not automatically renewed. If you have received a scholarship in the past, you must re-apply by the deadline each year in order to be considered for the next church year. References and transcripts are required to be returned with the application.
LENTEN LECTURE SERIES
Each year, the Women’s Association hosts a Lenten Lecture Series. Our Lenten studies are made up of a short series of weekday morning gatherings in the weeks before Easter. A committee from the Women’s Association, working together with the pastors, decides the theme of the study each year. This series usually includes presentations from the senior pastor and an associate pastor, and offers ample time for discussion and questions.
TENDER-LOVING CARE COMMITTEE (TLC)
The TLC Committee, sponsored by the Women’s Association, is a committee of volunteers who help other members at The Brick Church during difficult times. Please contact The Women’s Association office if you know of anyone at The Brick Church that needs some TLC. If you would like to volunteer or for more information please contact the Women’s Association office.
