“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.  Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

 Hebrews 10: 24-25

Women's Ministry (darker wheat) 400Faith Through Fellowship

There’s something special about being together as women – there is honest conversation, heart-felt encouragement, and laughter, even when we are in different life phases or stages. Best of all, there’s something special about women encouraging each other to know and experience the grace of Jesus Christ. That is our hope and prayer
through our ministry with women at 1st Pres.
If you are a woman, no matter your marital status, your work status, your age – you will find a place at 1st Pres to journey with each other as we come to know and experience the love of the Lord more.

Women’s Bible Study (meets each Fall and Spring during school year)

Fall Semester begins Sept.6th on Wednesday evening, and Sept. 14th on Thursday morning.

Registration will be open soon!

It is the church’s desire that all should have access to the wonderful opportunities of learning and community that are available at WBS, no matter their financial circumstances. In light of this, we will not be charging a fee for Bible study. However, the church still incurs costs to cover materials, facilities, and childcare (Wed: $15; Thur: $38). So we are stepping out in faith and asking everyone to contribute what they are able. If you are able to pay more, the same, less, or none, you are welcome. It is our desire that we would be a community of women who are seeking God, leaving no one behind. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Amy Carlan at amyc@1stpres.com.
