The purpose of Women’s Ministry is to glorify God. 

We provide avenues for personal spiritual growth and the development of spiritual gifts, expressing our God-given commission through fellowship, Bible study, encouragement, prayer support, 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.

Women of the Church

Our 18 Circles are organized through the Women of the Church and meet monthly both at the church and regionally for Bible study, fellowship, service, and prayer. Anyone wishing to join a circle, tap the buttons below!

Monthly Prayer Breakfast

Each month, on the third Monday, our ladies gather at 9:30 a.m. in the Ministry Building on the 1st floor in room 100 to pray for our church, our local mission efforts, our foreign missions and missionaries, our nation, and each other through personal prayer requests. Please join us as we not only adore and thank our Heavenly Father but also bring our confessions and petitions to the throne of grace. 

Summer Book Cub

Join us for our Summer Book Club! We will be reading It Happens After Prayer: Biblical Motivation for Believing Prayer by H.B. Charles, Jr. Meetings will be held on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. or Thursdays at 12:00 p.m., running from May 28 through June 27. Registration below!

Small Groups

Get Connected. Go Deeper.

Women’s Small Groups will meet for 11 weeks consecutively from January 17 to March 28, 2024. This spring, groups will be studying Kathleen Buswell Nielson's Proverbs: The Ways of Wisdom. There is no charge for the book.

Groups meet at a variety of times and locations. Small groups are a great way to both grow in your faith and knowledge of the Lord and fellowship with other women of all ages. If you're interested, please contact Marie Louise Bowers for more information.
