EXALTING GOD…

ENCOURAGING WOMEN…

 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. We also have a burden to reach out to the community around us and believe several of our activities will promote that goal. If you would like to be involved in any ministry listed here, please get in touch with the contact person.
