Women’s Ministry at First EPC makes strategic use of the woman-to-woman venue for the benefit of the church and its impact on the community. As you participate in women’s groups and gatherings, our goal is to bring authenticity, hope, and the love of Jesus into your life in a way that continually makes you stronger to run the race God has marked out for you. We want to help equip you to be a life-giving influence to those around you. Come on in!
