Our Vision, Goals, Strategy, and Plan

The Women's Christian Fellowship at Greater Framingham Community Church is comprised of women who love God and want to learn more about his teachings. To reach that goal the women meet over breakfast and study the Bible. The Women's Christian Fellowship is always committed to programs and events that provide support, encouragement and a positive role model to our youth and community. We provide care packages to college students and active duty military personnel in the Church and the Metrowest Area through fundraisers including the Sister to Sister Tea and the Women’s Retreat.

What We Are Up To

Women's Bible Study

The Women’s Christian Fellowship Breakfast and Bible study is held on the first and third Saturdays of each month from 8:30a.m. to10:15a.m. Although our breakfasts are hearty, varied, and nourishing, our primary reason for gathering is to partake of “food” from the Bible and other biblical based materials that will strengthen the spirit in Christ Jesus which, in turn, will enable us to live in ways that will honor God and others each day.

There is a short business meeting following the Bible study to address issues concerning the administration of the group and continued success in reaching our various goals and activities.

Women’s Week-end

The objective of the Women’s Week-end is to provide women with a spiritual experience in a setting outside of the church that will help women examine their relationship with God, examine their personal and family lives and fellowship with their likeminded Sisters in Christ. The Women’s week-end begins on a Friday evening in October and ends with our Women’s Day Celebration on the following Sunday at GFCC.

Women’s Retreat: The annual Women’s Retreat provides worship services and workshops focused on helping all women to become better Christian’s and better Sister’s in Christ. 

Women’s Day: The women of the church provide the direction for the Women’s Day Sunday Service. This service recognizes various accomplishments of women throughout history. It celebrates the good news that women are active in the church and worship God and is the culminating event for our Women’s Weekend.

Nursing Home Ministry

The Women's Christian Fellowship has made it our mission to go out and minister to our sister's who reside in area nursing homes and are unable to attend Sunday worship services. We select a different nursing home for each visit and go out to praise and worship with our sisters as well as any other residents who would like to join us. We have selected the 5th Saturday of the month for this mission.
