‘May the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.’

2 Corinthians 13:14

Our Women’s Fellowship met on Saturday, the 3rd of June for their monthly Bible Study. The Bible Study was conducted by Mrs. Veneetha Sunita.

We looked at the 3 important events, the Resurrection and the Ascension of our Lord Jesus, and the Gift of the Holy Spirit. As we worked our way to the first 5 Books of the New Testament, we tried to understand the significance of these 3 stages.

We focused on certain aspects of these historical events. Why did Jesus choose to appear before some individuals? How did that change them? What did Jesus do during the 40 days from Resurrection to Ascension, was another significant part of the Study. What was the purpose of asking the disciples to stay together and remain in Jerusalem?

Visualizing the Ascension as described in Mark 16: 19, Luke 24: 50-51, Acts 1:9-11, and then analyzing the multiple roles and powers that were bestowed on Christ Jesus as accounted in the Epistles, helped us understand how Jesus seated at the right hand of the Father is our advocate constantly interceding for us personally, calling us by name with love and understanding.

What did the disciples do during the 10 days between Ascension and Pentecost? We also used the following Biblical references from Acts 2:1-4, 4:27–31, 8:15 – 17, 10:44, 11:15,16, and Acts 19:6, to see for ourselves that the pouring in of the Holy Spirit was essentially when the disciples and believers were together in fellowship.

Why should we celebrate Ascension with fervour? Are we in a state of preparedness for the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus? Do we seek for opportunities to be in fellowship with fellow believers? Each one of us was challenged to reflect on these and the many questions that the Holy Spirit brings to mind as we meditate on the Word of God.

On the 17 of June, Candle Making Session was conducted by Mrs. Mirium Sadhu, where we learnt to make beautiful candles. It was a wonderful time of learning this beautiful art. We are grateful to God for all these experiences and opportunities He is giving to all of us.

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord,  He is my refuge and my fortress; my God; in him will I trust.”  Psalm 91: 1 & 2

On Saturday the 20th of May, the members of our Women’s Fellowship visited the Geriatric Ward of CSI Hospital, Bangalore.

There are around 20 inpatients. We greeted them, talked to them, sang Hymns praising our God Almighty, read the Word and prayed with them. The joy, love and happiness we saw in their eyes will stay a lifetime with each one They of us. Many of them requested us to visit them again. This was an evening of thanksgiving and gratitude to our Almighty Lord for His bountiful love and blessings towards each one of us.

We also experienced the showers of blessing in the form of the much needed rains to cool the atmosphere!

Thank you one and all who joined in and all those who prayed. This was indeed a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generation. Noah walked with God.

Genesis 6: 8, 9

A comparative Bible Study of righteous Noah and selfish Lot was conducted. Noah lived a life of faith whereas Lot lived by sight.

Noah found favour in the sight of God and because of Noah, God had favour on his entire generation. Lot’s selfish desire and greed led to his destruction.

Let us live like Noah always praying for our family members, preventing them from this evil and destructive world by our righteous living and developing an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit.

All of us present for the Bible Study had the unique privilege of sharing the goodness of our LORD through our testimonies. The Bible Study was conducted by Mrs. Anitha Noel.

On Saturday, the 15th of April, Crochet Class was conducted by Mrs. Sangeetha Maben, which all of us present enthusiastically learnt and enjoyed. This was indeed a class with so much of laughter and learning. We praise God for all His love for us.

“But David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear and with a javelin; but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” 1 Samuel 17: 45

Greetings from the Women’s Fellowship of our church!

On the 3rd of March, “WORLD DAY OF PRAYER” was held at St. Mark’s Cathedral. The Theme this year was, “I have heard about your faith”. Ladies
from our Women’s Fellowship took part in the Service. The speaker for the occasion was Prof. Esther Samuel, President of KCD CSI Women’s Fellowship.

Bible Study on the 4th of March was a great journey of growing together in the WORD. Mrs. Veentha Sunitha conducted this very interesting Bible Study, which we all enjoyed. Though a very familiar story of David and Goliath, the study was with a different perspective; our learning in fact has been tremendous through this study.

It was decided on the 18th of March, that each member of the Women’s Fellowship will make different kinds of items like jewelry boxes, scented candles, soaps, book marks, cards, candles, crochet of small items etc. and handover the same to the Women’s Fellowship before Palm Sunday.

These beautiful items and the work of their hands will be highly appreciated and sold on Palm Sunday.

We resumed after the Christmas vacation on Saturday the 4th of February with a wonderful BIBLE STUDY learning “WHO I AM IN CHRIST JESUS”, and we also enjoyed learning and understanding the NAME OF OUR LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, with great zeal and enthusiasm.

The members of our Women’s Fellowship attended the Civil Area Lenten Retreat on Saturday the 25th of February, from 9 am to 2 pm at Kothanur CSI Church.

We are grateful to God for all His bountiful blessings and we pray for all the members of our Fellowship that they will have a meaningful Season of Lent.

Greetings from the Women’s Fellowship of our church!

On 26th November 2022, our Women’s Fellowship celebrated Christmas by having a wonderful and fun-filled evening.

The Program began with Prayer and Praise and Worship, the vibrant Singing and Worship filled the air with a mood of celebration. Our Presbyter, Rev. Dexter S. Maben, graciously delivered the message. He highlighted the unique points “As a women we have a gift of hope, gift of blessing and gift of community”.

Games, Gifts, Refreshments, and lots of fun were a unique experience for each one of us present. On 21st December, our Committee Members visited “Love in Action Children’s Home” at Banasvadi, and distributed dresses and snacks for the children and spent some time with them.

With immense gratitude, we thank all the women of St. Andrew’s family for your generous support and prayers for the various activities conducted by our Women’s Fellowship. We are truly grateful and pray God’s blessing to be showered on each one of you.

“Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year”
