Cross Christian Women
Vision: There is a place for every woman in Women’s Ministry.
• Commit ourselves to live by, learn, and uphold the Word of God.
• Connect women of all ages through Bible study, fellowship, and service.
• Create an atmosphere where women can be released into their gifting for Kingdom purposes. • Cultivate positive, encouraging relationships that will provide opportunities for discipleship.
Motto: Woven Together in Christ
Scripture: Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:16-17)
Annual Christmas Bazaar
The Annual Christmas Bazaar is held each year on the first weekend in November. Homemade Christmas crafts, canned goods and baked goods produced by our own crafters and canners. Many volunteers insure that this event is a success and a blessing to the Church as well as the community. It is held at the Historic Campus from 9:00am-1:00pm. The funds raised go to support women's ministries and various outreach events in the church, school and community through CCW (Cross Christian Women) grants. Please contact Marianne Schroeder for more information.

Daughters of the King
The Order of The Daughters of the King is for women who are interested in continuing their baptismal vows and wish to take on a life that includes praying daily for unity in Christ's Church; the spread of Christ's Kingdom; God's blessings upon members of our chapter; our clergy; and the spiritual growth of our parish community. The silver cross the Daughters wear is either pinned on the left side over the heart or on a chain as a necklace that symbolizes love for Christ our King.
As we grow in community together, we make the banners given to children at Baptism and this year we continue to provide hospitality service at Cross School Family Chapel. Through these projects and others we fulfill our commitment to serve our Church.
Our Chapter meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall. Meetings include prayer, fellowship and an opportunity to learn and grow in Christ. Training for new Daughters is held in early spring on Saturdays. For more information please contact Emily Myers 843-705-6970.
Shepherds reach out to touch new women members with Christian love and hospitality. We introduce them to the facilities, activities and ministries of the Church. We encourage them to share their time, talents and resources. To learn more about this ministry or how to become a shepherd, please contact Martha Marcinkoski.
Wedding Guild members offer assistance to those involved in the wedding party. The bride has one meeting with a guild member and the Rector's Assistant prior to the day of the ceremony. At least two guild members attend both the rehearsal and the ceremony. In addition to specific tasks to assist the Officiant, the guild is present to serve the bride and her guests. Please contact Leslie Young for more information about joining this guild.
Women's Bible Studies
Mom's Bible Study / Mom's Ministry Support Group

Together this group nurtures and equips one another so that each woman can realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader in the name of Jesus Christ. It includes quality instruction in parenting, small group discussion, and the interaction of more experienced mothers with younger moms. Newcomers are always welcome and childcare is available with advanced notice. We meet Thursday mornings 9:45am - 11:30am in the Parish Hall at the Historic Campus.
