Women of the Church
Purpose of the Women of the Church
The purpose of the Women of the Church is to glorify God. We provide avenues for personal spiritual growth and the development of spiritual gifts, expressing our God-given compassion through fellowship, prayer support, and care and assistance in time of need, thus equipping and touching the lives of women who in like manner share the love of Christ with families, the community, the nation and the world.
Who is a member of the First Presbyterian WOC?
"The membership of the Women of the Church (WOC) shall be comprised of all women who join a Circle. It is desirable that every woman of the congregation be a member of the Women of the Church. A member attending or contributing financially shall be considered an active member." WOC By-Laws Article 1. Section 1.
What is a Circle?
Circles are small groups of women who gather monthly for fellowship, Bible Study, and service. First Presbyterian has fourteen Circles which meet on a variety of days at many different times to suit the schedules of most women. Each Circle has a personality all its own and women are invited and encouraged to visit any and all Circles.
