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.
