All women of the Church are included in this friendly fellowship which serves the Church, the local community, and beyond. The Women’s Association’s many fundraising efforts help support local benevolences, as well as special projects for the maintenance of our buildings.
Fellowship is also an important feature of the Women’s Association. The women meet throughout the year over brunch, luncheon, or dinner to conduct business or to enjoy special programs.
Our Antiques Show is held each February. The show, first opened in 1947, is the longest running antiques show in Northern New Jersey and one of the oldest in the United States.
More information is available on the Antiques Show website by clicking here.
Twice a year, donations are made from the money raised during the year from the Antiques Show and the two Rummage Sales. The following is a partial list of the charities the Women’s Association has supported over the years.
