“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
Faith 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 First Pres. If you are a woman, no matter your marital status, your work status, your age – you will find a place at First Pres to journey with each other as we come to know and experience the love of the Lord more.

Women's Bible Study
Begins September 9
God’s Story Through the Eyes of Women
You are invited to Women’s Bible Study. This year, we will continue to be flexible in our approach so that no matter what your unique situation, you can engage with Scripture and community through the study.
THURSDAY MORNING | In-Person
This will include gathering time, large group worship and teaching, and discussion groups. Childcare will be available with advanced registration. The teaching time will be recorded this day and we will post the recording so women engaging on their own can watch at their leisure.
THURSDAY MORNING | Virtual
Women are welcome to join by Zoom to watch the live teaching at 9:45 (or come early by Zoom at 9:30 to listen to the worship), and then go to Zoom break out rooms in smaller discussion groups.
ON YOUR OWN
If you are not able to participate on Thursdays or Tuesdays, but want to find a spiritual friend or handful of friends to discuss with, we will be happy to meet with you to help equip you for this task. These groups can be in-person or virtual as determined by the group. You are also welcome to receive the weekly curriculum and do the study on your own, watching the recordings as you are able.
Please Read Regarding In-Person WBS
If you are meeting in person on Thursday morning, masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status (this includes children ages 3 and older). Women who are teaching or leading worship may take off their mask when singing/talking, or actively eating. We will provide pre-packaged snacks and beverages for you to enjoy. These will be centrally located instead of served in Discussion Groups or on the second floor. Please note that protocols may change if the COVID situation and the governor’s mandates change.
We’ll keep you updated.
