women's ministry

Our Vision

To connect and love others through a ministry that provides opportunities for relationally rich experiences where women can grow in their devotion to Jesus Christ.

"That you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding so that you may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all aspects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God." Colossians 1:9-10

Our Mission Statement

To reach out to the women in our church and surrounding communities, equipping and encouraging them through Bible Study to grow spiritually and reflect a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.


Our team believes that walking alone in your faith is harder than walking with someone. Everyone does better when you have a friend who can help you to grow stronger in the faith. If you are interested in having a one on one relationship to grow spiritually please contact us.
