The Christian Women’s Fellowship of Marple Christian Church, Broomall, PA, has a benevolent project nearly every month (except July, August, and September). The monthly meetings can take place either in a classroom of the church building or in the home of the hostess of each meeting. All women are invited. Please contact the church to confirm the date and place, and if you need to arrange transportation or get directions.
Meetings in September and June begin with a "salad supper" at 6:30 p.m., on the second Wednesday of the month, with the program beginning at 7:30 p.m. Meetings from October through May are also on the second Wednesday of the month, but usually in the mornings. The morning group's meetings include reports and planning sessions from 10 to 11:30. The business is followed by a 15 minute program and a 15 minute worship devotional, ending by 12 noon (times are approximate, yet fairly accurate). Often we work on a project (projects are listed in the Projects bullet link below, by month) instead of having a program. At noon the meeting is followed by lunch (usually a bring-your-own-sandwich lunch with the beverages and a salad or dessert provided by the hostess), and sometimes followed by finishing up a project, which can go until 2 p.m. (participants are free to leave when they need to).
From October through May there is also usually an evening group which meets the same Wednesdays as the morning group. There is neither a business meeting nor meal at the evening meetings (therefore no hostess — although often someone brings a dessert), but there is a 10–15 minute devotional. This group usually has the same program or project as the morning group. They generally meet from 7:30 to 8:30 or 9:00 p.m., depending on how long the project takes.
