Wine, Women, and Wisdom (WWW) – WWW is a women’s group that meets once a month to enjoy each other’s company, share refreshments, and look for wisdom in our discussions—that’s how it came to be Wine, Women, and Wisdom. In addition to our fellowship and learning times, we’ve sponsored a number of events and service projects around the church. We meet in someone’s home on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Our first regular WWW get-together will be at 7pm on Tuesday, September 11th at the home of Nettie Rose (514 Yorkshire Dr., Haskins). Please let Nettie know that you will be attending by contacting Nettie at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or (419) 262-7889.
