Women’s Ministries

The purpose of Women’s Ministries is to be sensitive to and meet the needs of the women in our own church body and to establish and maintain teaching and encouragement ministries for the women.  We also have a burden to reach out to the community around us and believe several of our activities will promote that goal. 


Women’s Ministries is pleased to announce the plans for our

23rd Annual Ladies Day Apart

have been finalized!


Join us on April 17 or 18, 2015 

where we will welcome


“Leading Women in the Adventure of Faith”


We are thrilled that Lysa is joining us!  


Lysa is a New York Times bestselling author and speaker who helps everyday women live an adventure of faith through following Jesus Christ. As president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, Lysa has led thousands to make their walk with God an invigorating journey. For over 15 years, her message has enabled women to:

Make the Bible come alive as we read it.

Discover how to develop inner peace and security in any situation.

Replace doubt, regret, and envy with truth, confidence, and praise.

Stop unhealthy cycles of striving and learn to love who you are.

Sense God respondinging to your prayers.


Some of her top selling books include  Made to Crave. Unglued, Am I Messing up My Kids?, Living Life on Purpose

… and many more.   

The topic for Ladies Day Apart is still to be determined.  Check back here in the fall, and we’ll have it listed.

Brochures including a registration slip will be mailed the middle of January, 2015.
