In 1999, Beverly Russell was inspired to get ladies together for a Bible Study. Soon this group invited other ladies to a luncheon at Sugar Cane Bistro, Jupiter, Florida.
Beverly Russell, the founder, was the first Chairwoman, Anita Scarola was the first Vice-Chairwoman, and Estee Lacilla was both Hospitality and the Reservations Coordinator. Soon Anita Scarola facilitated the affiliation with Stonecroft Ministries and the group became known as the Christian Women’s Connection of the Northern Palm Beaches.
The group met in North Palm Beach, then at Jupiter Beach Hilton (now Jupiter Beach Resort) before moving to Tequesta Country Club in 2004.
Since Beverly Russell died on October 19, 2007. The ministry has continued to grow and meets regularly for Bible studies, prayer meetings and outreach luncheons.
