The Women’s Fellowship of the Tryon United Church of Christ (Congregational Church) is celebrating the 100th anniversary of organization on Sunday, May 5, with a special service and dinner.
One hundred years ago, in 1913, the Women’s Society of the Erskine Memorial Church of Tryon was officially established with the election of Anna Missildine as their first president.
The original mission statement of the group was (1) to enlist all of the women of the church in a fellowship of worship and service and (2) to promote missionary, welfare, and social work in the church and community.
