Women's Weekends


2018 THEME: The Water of Life

Coordinator: Judy Smith, Associate in Ministry 

Women's Weekends at Calumet are among the most popular programs we have here at Calumet. They provide an important opportunity for women to get away for fellowship, relaxation, faith sharing, (maybe some early Christmas shopping, too!) and fun. Come enjoy breakfast buffets, yummy lunches and a special Saturday evening candlelight dinner.

Our weekend includes awesome singing and music, inspirational devotions, a Bible study offered by the chaplain, and exciting Sunday morning worship! With free time in the afternoon, some folks head to North Conway for an enjoyable shopping trip, while others go for a refreshing fall hike, or on local shopping tours with Judy and still others curl up with a favorite book in front of our fireplace. Zumba or yoga will also be offered on Saturday morning and/or afternoon. Depending on the date, the Calumet bus has been known to visit local craft fairs too!

Saturday night entertainment:  "A Visit with Queen Victoria" ~ Sally Mummey

In 1837, teenaged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed, intelligent young woman whose mettle sustained her through her 63 year reign. Using Queen Vicotirias' diary and letters, this program reveals the personal details of a powerful yet humane woman, who took seriously her role as monarch in a a time of great expansion. She and her husband, Albert, set an example of high moral character and dedication, a novelty in the royal house after generations of scandal. Through her children she left a royal legacy; an era bears her name. Sally Mummey performs this living history in proper 19th century clothing resplendent with Royal Orders. Prince Albert may also make an appearance.

And for those who choose it, there is the added amenity of a soothing massage on Saturday with Nancy Carlson and Dixie Lea for a small fee. 

No matter what you choose to do with your time though, the best part is making new friends and re-connecting with old friends.
