Saint Paul's Episcopal Church Hosts Evening Get-Away For Women Feb. 20

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church will host an evening get-away, designed specifically for women, on Thursday, Feb. 20, at 7 p.m. in Key-Andrews Parish Hall. This outreach event is being hosted at churches nation-wide and is designed to bring women together to celebrate who God created them to be and to recognize that being generous with their time, treasure and talent is a reflection of God’s love, said officials.  

This women's outreach event was created by the Gestures of Generosity program and is intended to bring together women from all walks of life to share a common bond and, in turn, feel a greater sense of belonging within their community. 

The evening will include music, games, giveaways, food, and heart-warming storytelling. South African singer/songwriter Ilonka Deaton will perform.  

Tickets are $10 and include a gift bag.  VIP tickets are available for $20 and include reserved seating, a meet and greet and a CD by the artist. Tickets are available at the Church Office (266-8195) or by contacting Cheryl Gaillard at 602-5663 or cheryl@stpaulschatt.org. To learn more about this event, visit www.gesturesofgenerosity.com.
