WOMEN'S MINISTRY

MINISTRIES

Called to be disciples of Christ.

Here at First Pres, our women’s ministry is centered on our mission as a church – to know Christ and to make Christ known together. We are called to become disciples of Christ and be equipped for the work of ministry.

WOMEN’S BOOK CLUB

The women’s ministry will be introducing a SUMMER BOOK CLUB this June! We will be reading through Sensible Shoes by Sharon Garlough Brown. You may purchase the book HERE. Childcare will be available.

Sensible Shoes is a moving and heartfelt work of fiction that points readers to practical means of going deeper with God. Step into the lives of four different women as they grapple with what walking with Christ looks like in their own lives. The sacred journey begins at salvation and is for all those dissatisfied with living on the “surface”. Come explore spiritual practices as we seek to create a sacred space with God!

THREE SESSIONS (all sessions will meet from 6:30-8:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall)

June 10 – Chapters 1-4 – bring your favorite mug, a notebook and the book

June 17 – Chapters 5-8

June 24 – Chapter 9 and the epilogue

*Please read the chapters being discussed each week before you arrive!
