Savory Sisters at Master’s Way UMC enjoy fellowship time

The Savory Sisters at Master’s Way United Methodist Church like to extend their fellowship time beyond conversations on Sunday mornings.

Organized several months ago, Savory Sisters wanted “to get to know one another — their families, their prayer concerns, their blessings that the Lord has given them and their needs, personal or in the church,” spokesperson Gail Cooper said.

Cooper believes that knowing each intimately allows them to fully pray for one another. “It’s easy to pray for someone by name, but when you know their specific need it’s like God can zero in on the situation, not that he needs any direction.”

“I want the world to know that Jesus Christ is my savior,” Cooper said. “I will do everything in my power here on this short time on earth to spread his gospel.”

The ‘sisters’ meet now just for fun, but Cooper hopes to see the group as a basis for a mission group. “Wouldn’t that be great?” she said.

No membership requirements apply for Savory Sisters. “Just as it is at communion, all are welcome to partake, where one or more is gathered, so is the Lord in this place,” Cooper said. All Master’s Way women are invited to join. “We want as many to come as possible so that we can grow as a family in the church.”

“Savory Sisters go straight to a woman’s heart AND stomach,” Cooper said about their coffee-and-dessert gatherings. “We have lots and lots of talking and laughing.”

For their monthly meetings, Savory Sisters take turns at each other’s homes. “There’s no burdens on anyone,” she said. “It’s welcoming to have such wonderful sisters in the Lord into your house. By having it in your home, it becomes more personal.”

Her husband Richard Cooper has worked for NASA for more than 25 years. Their children are Cortney, Chris and Carson. They have one grandson, Coda.
