Women in Ministry

God created women to be life-giving helpers (Gen. 2:18). First Presbyterian Church’s Women in Ministry (WIM) seeks to help, equip, and strengthen the women of our Church to serve the Lord and bring Him glory through our unique calling as women (Titus 2). We invite all women in the Church to join us on this journey as we strive to think Biblically about womanhood. To learn more about how you can get involved in our multiple ministries to our Church and community, our weekly Bible studies, and our seasonal fellowship events, please contact one of our current WIM chairpersons.

We are God’s people, the chosen of the Lord, Born of His Spirit, established by His Word; Our cornerstone is Christ alone, and strong in Him we stand: O let us live transparently, and walk heart to heart and hand in hand. We are the Body of which the Lord is Head, Called to obey Him, now risen from the dead; He wills us be a family, diverse yet truly one: O let us give our gifts to God, and so shall His work on earth be done.
