The Women's Ministry at First Church exists to support women no matter where they are in their journey.
We are all at different stages of life, different walks of life and different places in our understanding of God and His Word.
The Women's ministry brings all of us together in various environments to learn from each other, challenge one another and grow
together in our faith. Hopefully you can plug into one of the areas of ministry and grow with us.
Various groups meet throughout the week to study God's Word together.
While most of these studies kick off in the fall, many are open to new people joining them whenever it works best for your calendar.
If you are interested in joining a Bible Study, contact email@example.com.
Our IF table ministry kicks off in August of each year. This is an perfect entryway into our women's ministry.
Each fall, women are assigned to groups of 6-8 that meet once a month for a meal together and to get to know each other.
As relationships are formed, these IF:Table groups become a place of support and encouragement throughout the year.
Our ministry to young moms was designed with an understanding that this stage of life creates a new set of joys,
but also a new set of challenges. These groups allow moms to set aside time for adult conversation,
mentoring and intentional spiritual focus at a stage when these things are hard to come by.
Our women's ministry also creates various social events throughout the year to allow women to connect on a social level.
This may include meals together, special nights out or even our annual retreat.
