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!

Many women attended the quarterly "Be Encouraged " event on February 24, 2017 and were encouraged by our own Michelle Ragain, as she shared her life journey and how God has faithfully and graciously sustained her the whole way. He has walked alongside her through both the very difficult challenges and the good times in her life. We were all encouraged to trust God through our life journeys. Each one of us has a "story" to share with others.
Women’s Ministry Kickoff Brunch “Fresh Brewed”
On Saturday, September 17, 2016, the Women's Ministry Kickoff was a special time to introduce our fall programs, be inspired to a new "fresh" walk with God by guest speaker Deedee Collins, and be led in worship by “Gloria Dei.”
"Lavender Springs Spa" was the theme for the Spring 2016 Women's Retreat, which was an opportunity to get away to spend time together for fellowship, bonding, eating great food, and studying the Psalms, as we focused on "resting" in God and His promises to us.
