Women's ministry


Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up. - Romans 15:2

The desire of FRC's Women's Ministry is to help women grow in their relationship with God and with each other. We have many different ways to get involved including Bible studies (one time only or year-round), events, fitness opportunities, and ministry opportunities. If you have any questions or ideas about how Women's Ministry at FRC can meet your needs please contact our Director of Women's ministry, April Beaver.

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. - Psalm 143:8

Our October Women's Morning Gathering will be Saturday, November 20 @ 9:30am with a special Cookie Decorating Class. This class is for women and girls of all ages and will teach some simple cookie decorating techniques that will delight your friends and family.

We will create three different types of Thanksgiving cookies: Turkey Spice Cake Pops, Oreo Truffle Snowmen, and Frosted Sugar Cookies.

Plus you will leave with recipe cards and lots of tips to create cookies beautiful at home.

The cost for the class is $10, payable at the door. Let April Beaver know that you are coming or sign up at the Welcome Center

Meal Train is a ministry where we provide meals to those in our congregation in need. Typically we provide 6 meals over several weeks to families when they have a new baby. We also provide meals as requested/needed for other reasons such as an illness, spouse deployment, etc. If you would like to receive meals or would like to provide meals to those in need please contact April Beaver.
Occasionally we have other places to volunteer such as setting up for one-time events, leading Bible Studies, giving a short devotion at a Women's Gathering, and others. If you have a heart to serve and would like to volunteer with Women's Ministry contact April Beaver.
