The  women's  guild

On May 31, 1906, a "Frauenverein" was organized, at St. Peter's Church, with eight charter members.  The meetings were held monthly, in the homes of the members, and no refreshments were allowed to be served.  This organization continues today under the name of THE WOMEN'S GUILD.

Today the women say, 

"We are The Women's Guild (aka Guild) and all women, of the church, are invited to join.  We might meet at the church, in a member's home, or take a road trip.  Watch the Newsletter for meeting dates and times."



This is a very good picture of the ladies of the Guild, but it is not a typical picture.  They rarely pose for pictures and are rarely all quiet at the same time.  These ladies are way too busy to sit still and  enjoy each other's company way too much to be silent.

The Women's Guild has meetings, but the meetings are not scheduled as in the past.  The meetings might have a short business report, a program, and refreshments or the meeting might be an outing.  


During the year, various fundraisers are held to support the Guild activities.  Over the years, there have been purse sales, art sales, and, most likely, a fair number of pies and cakes have been sold.


  • Provide Upper Room devotion books - For many years, this project has provided the devotional to anyone who wants one.
  • Card ministry for those in hospitals, in nursing homes, and recovering/ill at home and thinking of you cards to encourage those who need a bit of cheer
  • Visit shut-ins (home and nursing homes) to give encouragement and a cookie or small gift
  • Flowers are taken to those in nursing homes or shut-ins at holidays
  • Purchased cabinets for the new kitchen and blinds for Fellowship Hall
  • Purchased artificial flowers for the altar

The ladies, of the Guild, have meetings and outings to achieve their real goals:

Serving God through their service to the church

Encouraging and supporting the congregation

Sharing in the joys and concerns of the women of Urbana Yoke Parish

Working, laughing, talking, meeting, and enjoying refreshments together

September 2022 to february 2023

The Guild --- Well, how do you describe a wonderful group of ladies getting together?  Instead of trying to describe them, join us as our Guild traveled to a café and gift shop, celebrated Christmas, and joined together for breakfast and a craft.  


women's retreat 2021

The Women's Retreat was a church wide event and 21 ladies attended.  What a joy to have time together!  Time to laugh and eat and talk.  The program was on stress women encounter in life.  What was discussed?  Sorry, you had to be there.  Enjoy this short video of our day. --- Hopefully more women will join us the next time.


guild christmas 2019

The ladies met at The Little Cathedral, in Roann, Indiana, for their Christmas celebration.   A good time was had by all.  Since it is often hard to tell exactly what is going on, a few elves arrived to explain the afternoon.  Hopefully, the elves do not offend anyone.  ----

                                      MAY YOU HAVE A BLESSED CHRISTMAS AND A NEW YEAR FILLED WITH JOY.
