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.

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 the heart to serve and would like to volunteer with our Women's Ministry contact April Beaver.
