Text Box: The IPC Women’s Fellowship of North America Eastern Region was formed at the initiative and support of the Eastern Region Council, especially, its first President, the late Pastor A. C. George, and then-Secretary, Bro. George Muruppel.  Sisters Annamma Kurien and Annamma George were assigned as coordinators to organize the fellowship, which held its first meeting at the IPC auditorium, Queens Village, on November 30, 1991.

The fellowship is a part of the IPC Eastern Region and functions under the guidance of the Council.  The officials of the fellowship, comprising a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and youth coordinator, were elected at the annual general body meeting for one-year terms until 2003. The term was then extended to three years to be concurrent with the term of the Eastern Region Council.  The fellowship’s committee, consisting of the elected officials and representatives of the member churches, plans its annual programs at the beginning of the year.  Programs include fellowship meetings, fasting and prayer, tract distribution, nursing home visits, seminars and conventions.  The main goals of the fellowship are to promote spiritual growth and to maintain unity among sisters of the member churches.

The fellowship receives its spiritual and financial support from the member churches and it receives voluntary contributions from the members.  At the end of each year, the committee sends excess funds to mission work in India, mainly through the IPC Sodari Samajam in Kumbanadu for charitable works such as marriage, education, housing and medical help, and to help sisters in Sankethams.

Sisters Annamma George, Susan Mathew (IPA), Susan Mathew (ICA), Valsa Johnson, Annamma Kurian, Layamma Samuel have led the fellowship as presidents; sisters Annamma Kurian, Leyamma Samuel, Saramma Philippose, Elizabeth Varughese, Aleyamma Koshy, Rachel Varughese, Saramma Daniel have served as vice-presidents; sisters Daisy Johnson, Marykutty Alexander, Kunjumol Daniel, Mercy Philip, Susan Mathew (IPA), Elizabeth Varughese, Elizabeth Thomas, Valsa Johnson, Aleyamma Samuel have served as secretaries; and sisters Aleyamma Thomas, Jolly Philip, Marykutty Alexander, Aleyamma George, Elizabeth Thomas, Elby Varughese, Saramma Philippose, Susan Joseph have  served  as treasurers.  Former youth coordinators include sisters Tania Samuel, Lena Daniel, Sheba Alexander, Marsha Alexander, Amy Thomas and Biji Varghese. We thank everyone for their valuable services.
