One in a Million: Journey to Your Promised Land
a Seven-Session Study From Priscilla Shirer

Every woman is on a journey. In looking carefully at the two Israelites (out of two million) who crossed over the Jordan and into the Promised Land, we find direction for our own spiritual lives. Expect to see God move in miraculous ways in your everyday existence. Priscilla encourages participants to fully engage in the abundant life God has waiting for those who will allow Him to take the lead in daily living. One in a Million is an opportunity for you to experience your deliverance from strongholds, to conquer your wilderness living, and to claim your God-given inheritance.

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 eventsand ongoing 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!
