When Sisters in Christ meets for its sixth annual women's program next month, it will be in a new location, with some new faces and launching a new Web site.
Sisters in Christ, a group of six women from southern Lancaster County, will be bringing their zany brand of humor to other women at their program at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4 at Calvary Church, 1051 Landis Valley Road, Lancaster. They're changing locations from Solanco High School, where they met last year, because they outgrew the facility.
Sisters in Christ is made up of Tawn Battiste, Cathy Peifer, Missy Reynolds, Joni Rogan, Jean Ross and Dannel Wissler, who is prayer coordinator and the newest member.
This year's program will feature C4, the praise and worship team from Calvary Church, the Sisters in Christ choir, and the members will speak on different topics relating to Christ.
"We have some good surprises we didn't have before," said Battiste, one of the founders of the group.
Sisters in Christ also has a new Web site, www.freewebs.com/sistersinchristpa that Ross's 16-year-old son Dan, a junior at Solanco, put together.
The purpose of the Web site is to let people know what the event is all about and to get feedback from those who attend. The site also provides bios of the members.
Also new this year are T-shirts and fleece blankets with the Sisters in Christ logo on them. Peifer's uncle, George Clark of Washington Boro, designed the logo of a cross with a heart on it.
The T-shirts sell for $10 each and the blankets cost $20 and will be available at the event. DVDs of the event will also be for sale, but must be ordered.
The group are selling the items so they're able to keep the event free, said Battiste.
"One of our major goals beyond evangelism is keeping it free," she said.
There are also several volunteers from Wesley United Methodist Church and St. Paul's who help at the event.
The group will be doing an interview on the Christian radio station WDAC in New Providence at 10:30 a.m. Jan. 28 and a live interview on WJTL Jan. 31.
Ross said the evening is a time for women to laugh and cry.
"There is not a woman in the whole audience who can say they haven't been touched," she said.
"It's given me a deeper passion for the body of Christ and a desire to see people unified under Christ," said Reynolds, who is one of the newer members.
