  • Women On Their Own (W.O.T.O.)

    Women on Their Own (WOTO) is a unique community outreach supported by the Lewes Presbyterian Church Deacons’ Caring Ministry for single women from various walks of life who live alone. We have an average of 30 members from at least six different churches in Lewes and surrounding communities. 

    The purpose of WOTO is to encourage one another to find strength and renewed joy through faith in God and mutual support of one another. We provide times of regular fellowship for women from all denominations who live alone –especially those who have been more recently widowed or divorced –in the hopes they will be enriched by Christian friendship with others who can empathize with their situation and offer encouragement.

    WOTO members get together for luncheons at various local restaurants on a regular basis along with other opportunities to attend movies together, a knitting group which meets in various women’s homes and others who enjoy playing card games. Anyone interested in joining this group of caring women, please contact WOTO Coordinators Carolyn Garwood, 302-645-5409 or Gladys Shaw, 302-644-8714, or you may call the church office.

  • Heart-to-Heart

    Heart-to-Heart is a Christian women’s ministry within Lewes Presbyterian Church, linking members together as friends in a year-long partnership. Additional members are solicited yearly and new partner assignments are made. This ministry is vital both spiritually and socially within LPC as it links together both older and younger women in Christian friendship across the three different LPC worship times.

    Members are encouraged to pray for each other, call one another and get together as often as possible, just as good friends do together as their friendships unfold. Partners have opportunities to offer spiritual enrichment and encouragement in each other’s lives as partners seek to bless one another in a myriad of ways and are blessed in return.

    • Social partner gatherings are offered seasonally to create a wider opportunity for developing Christian friendships among partners within the church, including:  
    • Summer Salad/Dessert Luncheon
    • Autumn Caramel Apple Making Christmas Progressive Dinner and Yankee Swap
    • Winter Soup and Cinema Night  
    • Spring Shoebox Luncheon
    • New Members Formal Tea at the Buttery in Lewes in June

  • Moms In Prayer

    What if you could change the world – not just for today but for generations to come? At Moms in Prayer, we believe that a mom can be the single greatest force for good in the lives of her children and the children around her. We believe that lives and whole communities are changed forever when moms gather together to pray to the only One who can change a human heart. Moms can make the difference as they reach out to God in prayer- moms just like you.

    LPC has two Moms in Prayer meetings—one on Tuesdays at 8:00 a.m. and also on Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. Both prayer sessions are held in the Conference Room.

    If you would like more information about this program, please click on the link below or call Annick Hughes at 302-644-1239.

Kelly Class

The Kelly Class of LPC is made up of women who meet together on the 2nd Monday of each month for lunch at local restaurants and a business meeting. The Kelly Class has two yearly fundraisers: a three- day rummage sale in May or June and a one-day Christmas bazaar on the first Saturday in December. These two events are very successful because of the help of many people who donate items to sell, others who help set up and/or come each day to help with manning tables and oversee the sale items during these events. The funds raised by the Kelly Class are distributed to a variety of local needs including the Immanuel Shelter for the homeless, the Community Resource Center, New Coverdale Outreach Ministries in Coverdale Crossroads, hats, gloves, scarves and coats distributed at the Thanksgiving Community dinner, and funding for various projects within LPC. Kelly Class welcomes new members. If you are interested in more information or would like to join this group, please contact Lyn Traxler, President or Brenda Keith, Vice-President at the church office.
