Women’s Ministry

Connect and grow in friendship

Our Women’s Ministry seeks to create an authentic and empowering space for women in our congregation to connect and grow in friendship with each other. Women will grow in their relationship with God and learn how to bring their faith into their daily lives and the challenges women face in today’s world and culture. Our Women’s Ministry will equip women with how to grow in a deep-rooted faith and share the love of Jesus with the world around them.
