Women’s Ministries

There are several groups for women at West Chehalem.


Friends Women

This group meets on the second Tuesday of each month during the school year
at 1:00 pm. The group has a missions focus and a guest speaker shares
about a specific mission each meeting. Meetings take place in homes or at
the church. For more details contact Paula Benham at 503-538-3250.

Women Connect

From September to May we hold a women’s brunch in the church multipurpose room on one Saturday a month at 10:00 am. This is a time of fellowship, encouragement, good food and an opportunity to hear from a “mystery guest.” This has been a great venue to invite women to connect and build friendships with other women.

Rural Homemakers

This group is a long-standing tradition at West Chehalem and has been more of a community group than a church group, although several women from the church participate. Newcomers are always welcome. These meetings take place on the first Tuesday of the month during the school year at 10:00 am through 1:00 pm. There is a different topic each time with a variety of speakers. A pot-luck lunch is held each time. For more details contact Bette Koivu.
