Searching for a place to belong, believe, and become?  First Women’s Ministry seeks to connect and equip women for this purpose.  We offer a  variety of Women’s Events and Bible Study. Through these activities and connections the ministry seeks to:
  • Foster significant and deepening relationships with one another and with Christ.

  • Offer opportunities for women spiritual encouragement, growth, and exercising their giftedness.
  • Meeting the needs of each other as well as women in our community and around the world.

Try thinking about this — hanging out at a café with friends, while enjoying your favorite hot beverage, nibbling on a brownie or a bit of chocolate pie, laughing, talking, and relaxing together — it’s a perfect gathering! Join us at Café Chocolate. It’s a bible study where we’ll focus on God’s grace, and even complete a mission project — with a bit of chocolate sprinkled on top.

Invite your friends, we hope you join us as we delight in Cafe Chocolate!
