Greenford Lutheran has an active women's group.  Its core group regularly meets once a month for lunch to enjoy bible study and fellowship.  But throughout the year it expands its ministries to include many more women  through fundraisers, craft get togethers, and fellowship events.  One of their most loved traditions is the annual Madrigal Dinner for women in December.  

Throughout the year monies raised from their fundraisers help to support our outreach ministries (see the mission section of our website) as well as provide lunches/dinners for grieving families following funerals held at the church. In 2019 the Women raised over $1,500 which allowed the group to donate to Oesterlen Youth Services, Camp Frederick Lutheran Camp, provide funeral luncheons, as well as help the Men's Group purchase new fellowship hall chairs. Due to the global pandemic of COVID 19 the women's group did not hold their normal spring, summer, and fall events.  Most recently they decided to cancel the annual December Madrigal Dinner breaking a 25 year tradition.  We continue to pray that the global pandemic will cease and fellowship and service ministries like our Women's Group can resume their activities.


Most recently the women's group enjoyed a fellowship/fundraiser by coming together to make Kolachi to sell for the upcoming Easter season.
