Tirzah Apple Valley
We are advocates for Tirzah International and their work “Investing in women who are changing their world”. We do this by:
Meeting once a month to review Tirzah work being done around the world
Praying for all leaders within the organization and our regional leaders globally
Raising awareness in our community about Tirzah
Supporting the organization monetarily by having fundraisers
We also strive to be informed about local charities, especially when they pertain to helping women overcome oppression and violence.
We meet once a month,
on the first Monday of the month at 9:00am.
In 2019 the dates are:
November – if we decide to sell items at the Quilt Show it will be November 9

Hold a fundraiser through a local restaurant where part of the sales on a certain date, for those with a special flyer, would go to Tirzah
