ENCOURAGING WOMEN IN FAITH AND FELLOWSHIP
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.

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. If you want to see our past newsletters click here.
Finding I am Bible Study
"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. - John 10:11
During Lent this year (Feb 18 - Mar 25) we will have the opportunity to walk through the seven "I Am" statements Jesus made. This study will be on Thursday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00pm in the church's library. Each Thursday we will watch a video by Lysa TerKeurst and have some discussion time. Join us as we discover how Jesus can satisfy the deep cry of our hearts. Contact April Beaver by February 10 to participate.
What is the deep cry of your heart? That ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it. Join us as we watch Lysa TerKeurst walking through streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John.
Women's Book Study
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. - Proverbs 2:6
Our book studies provide a great way to read good, inspiring books on your own schedule. Each week you will receive a reading assignment and questions. You can choose to think through these questions on your own or talk through them with one or two other people (you can choose your group or we can place you in one). At the end of the book we will come together as a group to discuss the way the book has transformed our life. Books vary from Christian living to Christian fiction and are on a variety of topics.
Our next book study will be Newton and Polly: A Novel of Amazing Grace. This is a historical fiction that uncovers the true love story behind the famous hymn, Amazing Grace. The book study will be from February 1 - March 27. Books are $15. Sign up at the Welcome Center or contact April Beaver by January 20 to participate.
