Women’s Ministry

Who We Are

First Women gather to help nurture our church, our community, and each other in Christ’s love. In addition to encouraging each other in supporting the church’s ministry, we plan a variety of special events and onging activities to help women enjoy life together, build friendships, and grow spiritually.

First Women Prayer

First Women meet in the bond of prayer each Sunday from 8:30 – 9:00 a.m. in the Bride’s Room. We meet to simply pray—no fluff, no food, just fellowship in prayer.

Soul Time

Soul Time is a gathering of our young women and mentors for a light supper and study most first and third Tuesday evenings. We are currently studying Francis Chan’s Forgotten God.

Craft & Crop

Craft & Crop is held on various weekends throughout the year. It’s a time for crafty ladies to come together at the church with plenty of space to work on your projects. It’s not just for those who scrapbook, either. Bring your knitting, crochet, painting, cardmaking, or other activity, and be sure to invite your friends and neighbors, too!
