Women of St. Paul’s
All women who attend St. Paul’s are part of WSP and are welcome and encouraged to join us for our bi-monthly meetings – otherwise known as “Socials” – held in members’ homes throughout the year. It’s a great way to get to know each other.
We also host several events throughout the year – the English Tea in December, the HeArt and Soul Women’s Retreat in the first quarter of the year, a bake sale during the annual Men of St. Paul’s BBQ in the fall, and a Bazaar in the Fall. Funds raised are used for in-reach, community outreach and historic preservation.

Women of St. Paul’s Events
The English Tea is an annual tradition and held in conjunction with the Heritage Foundation’s Dickens of a Christmas in Historic Downtown Franklin. Scones, tarts, dainty sandwiches, fruit, tea and many other goodies are served on fine china with beautiful linens and festive centerpieces. It is a warm and wonderful time to enjoy time with friends.
The tea is one of the biggest annual fundraisers for the Women of St. Paul’s. With the money raised, the women do various things for the church and the community.
We always welcome new volunteers, and equally important are those who attend, many of whom come every year.
heART and Soul Women’s Retreat
heART and Soul Women’s Retreat is February 2 – 4, 2024. All women of the church are invited to attend this fun, relaxing, getaway. Various activities are planned, with the focus on renewal of mind, body, and spirit.
WSP Flower Sale
The Spring Flower Basket Fundraiser last year was a huge success and we look forward to adding fern baskets this year.
The annual WSP Bazaar is a great place to shop for that one of a kind treasure as well as donate items that you no longer need. The Bazaar is usually held around Labor Day Weekend.
We accept small household items (please no large furniture- there will be a sale later), books (no textbooks), games, toys, sporting goods, tools, seasonal decor, lamps, handbags, kitchen items, clean linens, jewelry. We do not take clothes or shoes.
WSP Bake Sale
The annual WSP bake sale is held during the barbecue. We need lots of your favorite desserts (made with your recipes) to compliment the fabulous dinners everyone will be taking home. We are selling whole cakes, pies and cobblers, cookies and brownies/bars by the dozen and large loaves of sweet breads, like banana.
