The women’s ministry is one of the most important and active ministries within our church. It exists to help every woman in our congregation—no matter what age or stage—to know Christ personally and to commit to extending His kingdom in her life, home, church, community, and world.
The women in the church nominate and elect members to serve on the Women’s Leadership Team, a group of six women who provide the vision and direction for this important ministry. They meet regularly for planning purposes and are responsible for ensuring that the women in our church have ample opportunities to minister and to grow in their relationship with Christ and with other women in the church.

Baby Shower for Women's Resource Center: We will once again kick off the year with a brunch and baby shower supporting Women's Resource Center in Gulfport. They serve a vital role in the lives of women and babies in this area, and we are honored to have the opportunity to support them. On Sunday, August 12 and August 19, there will be a crib in the main hallway at church where you can leave your donations, or you can bring them to the shower on Thursday, August 16, from 9 - 11 a.m. at church (childcare provided). Suggested donations include diapers, wipes, clothing, strollers, diaper bags, pacifiers, and other things that would be helpful as we assemble diaper bags.
Women’s Retreat: We are eagerly anticipating this year's FPC Women's Retreat to Gulf Shores, AL. This will be a time of refreshment, relationship-building, encouragement, and an opportunity to preview the book for the Spring 2019 Women's Bible Study class. Our desire is for our women to grow together, so this will be a largely unscripted time.
We still be staying in a beach house in Gulf Shores, and you may arrive as early as 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 7. We will check out no later than 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. Meals for Friday evening - Saturday evening will be provided. Sunday breakfast/brunch will be on your own; those who wish to stay and have brunch together at a local restaurant are invited to do so (but we understand if you need to get home!).
The suggested registration fee is $75 to cover the cost of lodging and meals, but please do not let cost be a barrier to attendance! We just want YOU there!
Spots are limited to 19 women, so please register as soon as you know you will be able to attend. Once we fill those spots, we will begin a waiting list.
We are looking forward to spending an encouraging and refreshing weekend with you!
