Women's Retreat

Women's Retreat
All Women are invited to our annual retreat held at Tall Oaks Conference Center in Linwood, KS. You only have to say the words “women’s retreat” to anyone who has attended and you’ll quickly see the enthusiasm, energy, and inspiration that resulted from their two days with other amazing women. Registration forms become available in January. Contact Denise Dugan for more information.

Quarterly Women's Events

We sponsor quarterly women's events to which all women at Saint Andrew are invited! They are usually a potluck Soup & Salad Lunch with lots of yummy soups, salads, and desserts with an interesting speaker on a timely subject.
Nancy Cramer• Women's Salad Lunch - June 14:
"World War I and Women: World War One Offers New Opportunities for Women" with Nancy Cramer:
Join us for lunch at 11:45am in Friends Hall for this special presentation.

Women were needed to fill vacancies left by men going to the military as mechanics, factory workers, train conductors, even police officers. Women drove ambulances in war zones and replaced men in military office positions. The skills women learned, along with gaining a new sense of independence, changed the role of 20th century women completely.

Nancy Cramer has taught children and adults for more than 30 years. She has volunteered in a number of areas: Science Pioneers, Unity Church of Overland Park, Northeast Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, and the Bellefontaine Corps of the Salvation Army. The past four years she has been one of the many volunteers at the National World War I Museum. Her interest in this topic has been the subject of four published books with several more planned in a series called “World War One Poppy Books.”

Please RSVP and let us know you are coming; if you will bring a salad or dessert; and if you can help with set up or clean up.
