Welcome. Women’s Ministries at Saint Andrew offers you a variety of opportunities to connect with other women. We invite you to gather together for fun, study, support, and friendship — and usually some great food thrown in for good measure!

We hope you find one or several groups that work for you. For more details on any group, contact the name provided or the church office at 913-764-5888.

Women's Retreat

Women's Retreat - May 3-4, 2019
All Women are invited to our annual retreat held in the spring 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. Contact Denise Dugan, denise@sacchome.org, 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. Watch this space for the next Quarterly Women's Event!

Women's Groups

Wise Women is a group for wise women of ALL ages and friends are always welcome.

Traci SorellSeptember 13
Centering Native Nations, Their Citizens and Experiences in Literature for Children and Teens with Traci Sorell; 7:00pm in Friends Hall. Traci Sorell, author and former SACC member, will share about her journey to publication in the field of children’s literature and the need for accurate representation of Native peoples both in text and illustrations created for children and teens to read.

Traci’s debut picture book, We Are Grateful: Otsaliheliga, illustrated by Frané Lessac, features a panorama of modern-day Cherokee cultural practices and experiences, presented through the four seasons. She’ll read from this book and have a list of other books with accurate representation to share with attendees.

Those who wish to pre-order the book can do so from their favorite local bookstore (e.g., The Learning Tree, Rainy Day, Books, Barnes & Noble, etc.) or an online retailer. We Are Grateful: Otsaliheliga will be published on September 4, 2018 by Charlesbridge Publishing. Traci will be happy to sign any books after the presentation.

Traci Sorell writes fiction and nonfiction books as well as poems for children, featuring contemporary characters and compelling biographies—the type of books she sought out in her school and public libraries as a child. Traci is an enrolled citizen of the Cherokee Nation and lives in northeastern Oklahoma where her tribe is located. For more about Traci and her other forthcoming works, visit www.tracisorell.com.
