Women’s Ministries

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
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. Registration forms become available in January. 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. Each month will feature a varied and interesting program on such timely topics as health, creativity, family and friend relationships, rituals and traditions. Come see what we are all about!

sewing class"Stitching Change" with Rakmi Shaiza - November 9, 7pm, Friends Hall
Rakmi Shaiza, founder, will present an inspiring and informative program about Stitching Change, a grassroots project to help refugee women empower themselves. They believe every woman can be creative and contribute to building a better society if given opportunities.

Most of these women have left their native lands to move to the U.S. to start a new life. They have experienced poverty, violence and uncertainty in their lives, but, in spite of all these challenges, they are resilient, creative and passionate about working to create a better life for themselves and their families. They share skills, meals, stories and laughter and through that have formed a small community.

We will experience firsthand their stories and they will bring some of their crafts available for purchase.

Wise Women is a group of women of all ages, and friends are always welcome.
