Cross Christian Women

The mission of Cross Christian Women is to provide opportunities for women to serve and grow spiritually, to strengthen their relationship with God and to fellowship with other women. Cross Christian Women is guided by a Board: Sonja Wesseler, Emily Burden, Becky Owens, Rebecca Hamilton, Lisa Riddle, Nikki Sevier, Michelle Edwards and Kaye Dardaris. Like us on Facebook! 

Annual Christmas Bazaar and Arts Festival
The Annual Christmas Bazaar is held each year on the weekend before Thanksgiving. 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 Sandra Morgan, blondie44blue@yahoo.com  or Kaye Dardaris, dardaris@hargray.com for more information.

Canning Committee
We make jams, relishes, pickles and chutneys during the peak seasons from fresh fruits and vegetables. If you wish to learn how to can or assist with the big projects (primarily during the spring and summer months), contact Sandra Morgan, blondie44blue@yahoo.com. 

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 Mary Ann Ruggles, 843-707-7380 or fred.maruggs@yahoo.com.

Heart to Heart - Women's Mentoring Ministry                                                                         As women of faith, we are called to share with other women. Heart to Heart intentionally develops friendships among women of different generations. Women invest in each other's lives through encouragement, guidance, listening, laughing and loving. These relationships become a source of spiritual support, strength and growth. For more information contact Mimi Harmon, 770-316-1168 or mentor.cross@gmail.com.

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, TCOTCshepherding@gmail.com.

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.
