Women’s Ministry


Our mission is to provide opportunities for women to grow spiritually, develop friendships, encourage one another, and become equipped for ministry. “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing” (1 Thessalonians 5:11, ESV).

Women’s Ministry Sunday School – the 629 House, 9:45-10:45am

Please join us for a time of grace-filled discussion and fellowship during the Sunday School hour for a book study on Confronting Injustice Without Compromising Truth, written by Dr. Thaddeus Williams.
Thaddeus Williams is an Assistant Professor of Theology at Biola University in La Mirada, CA. His book, Confronting Injustice Without Compromising Truth, is a compelling collection of stories and insights instructing us to think about the topic of social justice from a Biblical worldview. Here is a link to an introductory video to the book.

NOTE: Occasionally, we enjoy the opportunity to meet together in the north side of DeSoto Hall and share new insights and prayer concerns, as well as give you any updates in Women’s Ministry. These dates will be announced in the bulletin!

As we break for summer don’t despair that you now must parent all day alone!

We will be looking forward to resuming our bi-weekly meetings in the Fall.

Friendship Circles

Ladies, would you like to get to know other women in the church better?  Would you like to meet with women of different ages and stages of life, encouraging one another and praying for one another?

We are beginning new Friendship Circles for 2022 and we are looking for new participants.  Friendship Circles are small groups of women who meet approximately once a month for fellowship and prayer.  If you would like to become more connected with other women at Faith, getting to know them and sharing your life, a Friendship Circle is a perfect way to do that.   

Last year over 50 women in the church participated in a Friendship Circle, meeting on a regular or semi-regular basis, for this very purpose.  Some groups bonded over activities, some groups bonded over a topic, but in every case, women got to know one another better.

If you are currently in a Friendship Circle, let your leader know your plans for staying in your group or switching things up.  If you want more information, to be in a group, or to be in a new group, please contact Dawn Darby as she will be making up new groups soon.


Service Opportunities

Special Receptions

We are looking for some women to serve in the capacity of organizing special receptions. This works best if two or three women take it on. You are not required to actually do every reception yourselves, but to make sure it happens by getting volunteers. This is such a huge service to our church and really not a time demanding job. If you are interested, or can think of someone who might be, please let Tina LeFebvre know, and we will give you more information about what the job entails!

Meals on Wheels

The purpose of Meals on Wheels is to provide meals for those families needing extra help due to illness, death in the family, adoption or childbirth. If you know of a need, please contact Jane Lewellen or the church office.

Meal needs will be requested via TNT (This ‘n’ That), the church’s e-mail announcement system. To receive TNT e-mails, please contact the church office. Thank you!

Paid Nursery Attendant Position Available

The church is looking to hire a nursery attendant to minister to our covenant children during the 8:15am service. Applicants should be at least 18 years old, have experience with childcare, be able to follow safety and security policies and procedures, and should be regularly attending the alternate morning service. (We do not wish for this position to hinder someone from regular Sunday morning worship!). Please contact the church office if you are interested in applying.
