“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.

Women’s Retreat | February 2020
Women’s Bible Study
The Women’s Bible Study exists for the purpose of bringing women to Christ and discipling them so that their lives glorify God. This is pursued through prayer, worship, personal Bible study, teaching of the Word, and small group discussion. It is designed for women of all ages, in all stages, and at all places in the spiritual journey. Women new to Bible Study are welcomed to join any Wed or Thursday. We meet in the fall (Sept-Nov) and the winter/spring (Jan – April).
Wednesday evenings | Meet in A-211 | January 16 through April 24 (except March 6, Ash Wednesday and April 17)
Large group teaching is followed by 30-40 minutes of small group. The average participation is 15-20 women.

One hour of large group teaching and worship & one hour of discussion time. We begin our time together in the Sanctuary. There are normally 130-150 women registered.
