On September 20th there will be a health fair in the Undercroft of the Church.  All are welcome


The Women's Ministry meets monthly in the church's undercroft or in the home of a parishioner. A lunch is served, followed by a Bible study led by one of the members. Health issues are also discussed.


Our outreach programs include collecting needed toiletries for a homeless shelter in Poughkeepsie and conducting a fundraising event to help support St. Andrew's & St. Luke's Food Pantry.


Gifts are given each year by the Women's Ministry to recognize  graduating members of the congregation from high school, college, and graduate school.
