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.
Women's Ministry Newsletter - Sign up to get our newsletter consisting of current Women's Ministry events and a dose of encouragement. The newsletters come out once or twice a month and are a great way to know what's going on, get connected, and stay encouraged.

Bible Studies

Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path. - Psalm 119:105

New reading plans start throughout the year, but you can join at any time. Sign up at frcoc.org/womensbiblereading.

Places to Volunteer

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. - Romans 12:11

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.
Freezer Meal Ministry: We have a couple of shelves in our kitchen freezer dedicated to freezer meals. This ministry provides meals to those who need them. If you need a meal or know someone who does, feel free to take a meal.

We are running low on freezer meals and would appreciate more meals. There is no formal method of stocking the freezer, so if you have extra, have the gift of cooking, or want to do a little to help, please bring a meal to our freezer. Please label your meal clearly with the date created, dietary notes, and the reheating/cooking instructions.
