Friends Women coordinates women’s groups in the individual churches of the yearly meeting area. Projects include the support of a missionary family on a foreign field and partial support of a family in Northwest Yearly Meeting involved in church planting. It also serves as an information link with the work of Evangelical Friends International. Groups within individual churches also have service projects in their local areas, as well as holding fellowship and support meetings.

Women’s Retreat 2022
September 16-18, 2022
Beautiful McCall, Idaho serves as a backdrop for REFUGE Retreat. Join us as we adventure into what it means to live courageously for Jesus, what it means to overcome limitations, fears, and doubts. At RISE: Refuge, we’ll challenge one another toward who we each long to be.
The Lord promises that he will walk with us through places of trouble and suffering. Join us as we discover what it means to let go of safety and what it means to rest completely in faith, walking in strength and bravery.
