SERVING, LEADING, GROWING
All women of the church are encouraged to participate in Women’s Fellowship. They meet every-other month for devotions, prayer, a business meeting and fellowship. The group takes responsibility for arranging fellowship meals for the congregation each Sunday, providing bereavement meals, bridal and baby showers, and support for shut-ins and seniors. They also provide support for various church functions like the meal for the annual Easter Egg Hunt and desserts for HymnFest.
Women’s Fellowship also provides financial support for local community needs, such as Weekday Religious Education, the Mental Health Association of Cass County, Southeastern Care Pantry, Walton American Legion, Cass County Cancer Society, the Children’s Choir of Cass County, Ark Ministries, and the OCC Preschool, as well as special individual benevolence needs.
To finance their endeavors, the group makes and sells homemade noodles. Their chief source of funding comes from the annual Chicken Noodle Dinner. On the second Saturday of each October, all the church joins together to serve over a thousand people delicious home-made chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes, green beans, dinner rolls, a full salad bar, and yummy dessert. “Eat your fill, pay as you will” is their catchphrase. They make and sell noodles all year round and everyone is invited to join in the process. Noodle-making is a great time of fun and fellowship.
