WHO WE ARE...
Change of Pace is founded upon the truth that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and desires to introduce women to a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Participants, coming from many different churches and of all ages and stages of life, enjoy a great time studying God's Word together. Many friendships are formed and cultivated within the group.
Change of Pace Bible studies is a ministry of the Friendship Foundation Inc., directed by Dona Fisher. The Foundation directs a study in central Lancaster County and a study in the southern end of the county (thus, the name, Change of Pace South or COPS). Before the southern group’s existence, women were traveling considerable distance to enjoy rich Bible study and Christian fellowship with other women. In 2000, a small group from the southern end proposed the establishment of a new group within close proximity to Quarryville, Oxford, and Peach Bottom, areas of southern Lancaster and Chester Counties. Starting with twenty women it grew to over one hundred women and continues to flourish. Since 2002, Change of Pace South has gratefully used the facilities of Providence Church.
