We help women engage with each other through events and small groups that provide a venue for friendship, growth, and service. The women’s ministry invites women to discover Jesus and experience a transformation in their homes, workplaces, and relationships.
. . . I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:16
- CONNECT with other women who love Jesus and love people
- GROW through weekly bible study and service to our church and community
- LAUGH. Or cry. We’re here for you. And we know that life is just better when we’re in it together.
