We offer a variety of ways for women to be encouraged and strengthened in their faith, as well as to use their talents and gifts to serve God and his people.
Our three Women’s Ministry branches are:
Women to Women, Bible Studies, and Specialty Groups
Women to Women
Women to Women
This group of women plans several events throughout the year providing opportunities for women’s fellowship. They organize events and activities that build relationships, encourage women and provide spiritual and social support to the women of FPC and to women of the North Shore.

Our women’s ministry also offers weekly Bible study for more intentional fellowship and spiritual growth as women gather together to discuss how God’s word and our lives intersect. For more information about those, click here.
We are currently offering two ongoing Specialty Groups with a third summer-only option!
Summer Playground Playgroup
Join us each Tuesday from 9:30 – 11:15 (ish) at a different playground on the North Shore! See this list with dates and playgrounds and just note that persistent rain cancels. Invite a friend, pray to meet new parents and their kids, and let’s get outside together! Join our Facebook page, “Playground Playgroup 2018” for more information and time-sensitive updates.
Spiritual Growth Book Clubs
These book clubs provide an opportunity for women interested in developing/growing an area of their spiritual life via a short but intentional book club facilitated by select women capable of helping women asses their strengths, learning needs, and ministry applications. A secondary objective is to create an environment where women can build new relationships and connect across age/career/marital/parenting lines. Our next group will form in the Fall of 2018, stay tuned!
Moving On After Moving In.
“Moving On After Moving In” Women’s Small Group Study. A Christ-centered 8-session study helping women cope with the challenges, emotions, and losses of a move and equipping them to put down roots in a new place. Based on the book, After the Boxes are Unpacked: Moving On After Moving In, by Susan Miller, president of the “Just Moved Ministry” (www.just-moved.org). The study will address emotional struggles and opportunities for spiritual growth as women start afresh in their new communities.
Moving On After Moving In “Meet & Greet” breakfast: Sat, May 5, 9:30am at The Ipswich Inn (2 East St, Ipswich). Are you a woman new to the area? Please join us for a morning of food and fellowship as we get to know you and welcome you to the North Shore! And meet “alumni” from our previous Moving On studies.
