Our Missions and Values

We exist to fulfill the feminine side of the church’s mission to represent the reign of God ascommunity, servant, and messenger.Because we value God, we pray, sing, worship, and exalt His name together.Because we value God’s Story, we study God’s word to deepen our walk with the Lord, build strong relationships with sisters in Christ, and learn together how to live out God’s Truth.Because we value God’s People, we:
•Offer a variety of special events designed to delight and challenge women as we laugh and learn together while getting to know God, ourselves, and each other a little better.
•Promote the (Titus 2:3-5) principle of older and younger women making a spiritual and practical impact on each other’s lives by learning, listening, praying, helping, serving, and modeling a godly life style.

Because we value God’s World, we desire to develop :
•A lay counseling team to address areas of discipleship, support groups, life skills, or access to professional help.
•An outreach to women in need to show God’s love in tangible ways.
•Our ability to share God’s story with joy and freedom.
•Offer occasional courses to equip women to serve the Lord with their spiritual gifts and to deepen their understanding of God’s Word and His world.

We Believe that women’s ministry within the church should be based on the Truth of God’s Word, therefore we believe women are:
