Women’s Service League Programs
2011-2012 ″Growing in Faith and Fellowship″

For over 150 years, our Women's Service League (WSL) has provided a combination of social programs, spiritual retreats, trips, and educational activities that appeal to women of all ages. Programs are held approximately every other month, and we play an active role in our denominational family's statewide and local women's programs. In addition, the WSL sponsors a prayer circle, craft circle and each year gives out a college scholarship to a deserving graduating seinior. The WSL also bakes home-made pies, which are sold at the Berlin Fair.
Below is a listing of the WSL actitivities we sponsor each year. If your interested in joining, just contact the church offic and someone from the WSL will get back to you.
