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

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.

Bible Studies

Our women’s ministry offers three weekly Bible study on Tuesday mornings, Tuesday evenings and Wednesday evenings.  Our goal is to foster 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.



Specialty Groups


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.  Stay tuned for our next group!



Moving On After Moving In.  


Are you a woman new to the area/new to FPC?  Join our Moving On Group Starting Jan 20th!
