Women's Ministry

Welcome to Women’s Ministry!
Our goal is to inspire women of all ages to be passionate followers of Jesus Christ.  Our purpose is to guide women in our church to love God with their whole heart; to love their sisters in Christ with a pure, strong love; & to zealously serve the church and the world around them with a sweet, self-sacrificing spirit. We seek to encourage and support women by providing the following opportunities:

  • Spiritual Growth (Study of God's Word/Prayer)
  • Fellowship (investing in genuine relationships)
  • Service/Outreach for Christ

We would love to have you join us....and be encouraged in Jesus Christ!

Carolee Fischer - Women's Ministry Leader


Women's Be Encouraged Event

IMG_3014Knollwood Women’s “Be Encouraged" event had a great turnout on April 27, 2018. We were all very encouraged & challenged by our own member, Diane Freda, as she shared her journey and powerful transformation from her life as a troubled and difficult young person to a life of victory she now has in Jesus Christ.

Women's 2018 Spring Retreat

IMG_1217The many KCC women who attended the Spring 2018 retreat enjoyed a beautiful and serene setting at Meadowkirk Retreat in Middleburg, VA. Wonderful fellowship, plus a special challenge by our speaker, DeeAnn Jeremiah (who made available to our women the first printed copies of her book Imagine), topped off the experience!
