The mission of Women's Ministries to help every woman in our congregation—no matter what age or stage—to know Christ personally and to commit to extending His kingdom in her life, home, church, community, and world.
The women in the church nominate and elect members to serve on the Women’s Leadership Team, a group of six women who provide the vision and direction for this important ministry. They meet regularly for planning purposes and are responsible for ensuring that the women in our church have ample opportunities to minister and to grow in their relationship with Christ and with other women in the church.

Women's Ministries Bible Reading Plan - Fall 2019
As we begin a new academic year, it is our prayer that all of the women in our church would be rooted and bulit up in Christ. "Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving." - Colossians 2:6-7
To that end, we have provided a reading plan for this semester that includes a daily reading from the Psalms, another Old Testament book, and a New Testament book. We hope that you will join us in this daily feast that nourishes our souls and rightly orients us to God and His ways.
