The Women’s committee of Unity Fellowship of Christ Church, Philadelphia has been in operation since 2006. UFCC Philadelphia recognizes women each year during the month of March. We have, on three separate occasions, celebrated women who have come before us, laid the groundwork, and whose shoulders we stand on as well as celebrated the women with whom we stand today. The various women that have participated in the committee agree that the voice and visibility of women and the needs of women should be a central component in the functioning and organizing of the church. Women have longed played a significant role within religious organizations but have only until recently begun to have significant leadership positions. As a committee, we are striving to fulfill the mission of the larger church body as well as our individual mission for there is truly a need and purpose for this work. We seek new ideas from women who are interested in participating and helping to ensure that we are true to our mission and purpose. Membership is open to any woman who is currently a member or planning to become a member of Unity Fellowship Church.
