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.

Lamp and Light: Women's Outdoor Hike Experience

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

Lamp and Light: Women’s Outdoor Hike Experience is for women, young and old, who enjoy the outdoors and walking with other women. It is an outlet to explore and enjoy the simple goodness of the outdoors, and to experience this within the comfort and safety of a group. If a participant wants to walk alone that day, as in a prayer walk, they are welcome to do that. The beauty and wonder of God’s creation await!

The experience can be multi-generational, but the adult sister, aunt, mom, or grandmother, are responsible for the girls they invite. This is also an excellent opportunity to reach out and invite other women from our community.
The June hikes will take place on Tuesday, June 21, at 9:30 am and Saturday, June 25, at 9:30 am at Hillview Recreation Area in Plymouth County. The park is a few miles west of Hinton but easy to find, and the trail is a fun 2.7-mile hike.

Sign up at the Welcome Center for one or both dates or email Glenda Devries. Please bring water and any hiking gear you need on the day of the hike.

Gatherings and Events

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. - Matthew 18:20

Women's Morning Gathering meets one Saturday morning a month at 9:30am. Each morning gathering is an individual event with a different devotion speaker. Come for a short devotion, light refreshments, and fellowship. Our monthly morning gatherings:
  • Bring women together in community
  • Help women grow in their walk with God
  • Give women in our church a chance to share with other women what God is doing in their life or perhaps share a talent they have with other women 

Other Events - Each year we have one or two events. These vary from Mother/Daughter banquets to Comedy shows to retreats. When we have a new event, you will be able to find the details on this page so be sure to check back often.

Circle of Friends - Designed to bring women together in fellowship and fun, this new women's group will meet on the third Tuesday of the month from 1 - 3 pm at church to play games and have conversations. Other outings will be scheduled throughout the month as well. Want more information? Contact Norma Krosschell.

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.
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.
