Women

“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 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.
