Welcome to the Band of Sisters
The Band of Sisters is a group of women dedicated to providing opportunities for people of faith, especially women, to gather in a prayerful setting in order to learn about and share their experiences of faith. Our goal is to form and encourage a Christian community of women who seek to grow spiritually. While we are of the Christian tradition, we welcome people of all faiths. Our gatherings include days of reflection, retreats, and opportunities to serve others in need.
We invite you to spend some time on our website - see if you feel drawn to any of the upcoming gatherings - and then - Come, Join the Band!

Happy Birthday to you - the Band of Sisters!!
We are having a Birthday Party for our 5th birthday. Plan to join the band on Wednesday, June 19 from 1:00p - 3:00p at the Raleigh home of one of our core team members. There will be lemonade and tea and cupcakes - and even some magic!
You won’t want to miss a minute of the party because at 1:30p, we will be mesmerized by a magic show with magician Lee Werley. Following his show, we will have the opportunity to actually learn some magic tricks so we can wow and delight our children and grandchildren! Come share in the magic of celebrating together.
Invitations have gone out - you can RSVP now, if you wish. Click here to be taken to the calendar page. Scroll down to June 19 and the RSVP form. Sure hope you can come!
