WOMEN’S MINISTRIES EXIST TO HELP LADIES CONNECT WITH OTHER LADIES WHO SHARE SIMILAR INTERESTS, DESIRES, STRUGGLES, AND VALUES SO THAT THEY CAN HELP ONE ANOTHER GROW SPIRITUALLY AND BECOME THE WOMEN GOD CREATED THEM TO BE. FBC OFFERS MANY DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR DISCIPLESHIP, ACCOUNTABILITY, AND FELLOWSHIP. WE WOULD LOVE TO HELP YOU FIND YOUR NICHE.
Our first meeting is on Thursday, October 5th from 9:15am-11:30am. We will share breakfast together, have fellowship, and discuss a different topic at every meeting. Certain meetings throughout the year will include crafts, service projects, and speakers. Meetings will continue the first and third Thursdays of each month until May of 2018. This year's theme for MOPS/MOMSnext is Free Indeed. We are focusing on the beliefs that we are free because of the love given to us by Christ, we can be brave in how we raise our families because of Christ’s love, and we should go first in telling others about our freedom in Him. Registration for MOPS/MOMSnext begins on Sunday, September 10th online or in person at the ministry fair. It is $75 for the whole year. Cash, check, or cards are accepted. Checks can be made out to Fellowship Community Church. There is childcare available for infants up to children in Kindergarten.
