Women's Ministry

The Women's Ministry at First Church exists to encourage women to know & love God and to equip them for ministry to others.  This mission is accomplished through Women's Bible Studies, Discipleship Groups, A Night to Breathe and other opportunities throughout the year that bring women together in the name of Christ to grow, serve, and learn together.

"Seamless: Understanding the Bible as One Complete Story"

Do you ever get nervous when it’s your turn to start reading or interpreting Scripture? What about when the names become unpronounceable, the context gets lost or the stories feel unfamiliar to you?

Whether you’ve grown up hearing Bible stories or you’re exploring Scripture for the first time, the full story of the Bible can be overwhelming, and the 66 books may seem disconnected at first glance. In this study, Angie Smith shows you how the whole Bible — from Genesis through Revelation — connects as one beautiful, seamless thread.

Over the course of six weeks, this study will help you:

  • Erase the belief that you aren’t smart or spiritual enough to know God’s Word as you gain more confidence in your understanding of Scripture. 
  • Stop getting lost in the details of individual books of the Bible by learning how they all fit together into one big story.
  • Connect with the people, places and promises of God’s Word in a fresh way with interactive maps, illustrations and daily questions.

"Discerning the Voice of God" by Priscilla shirer

Do you feel that the ability to hear God's voice is for other people and not for you? Is it only for people who lived in Biblical times? Not at all! The God who loved you enough to die for you loves you enough to talk to you. And wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand. Become acquainted with the Voice that has spoken from a fire and a cloud, with visible signs and an invisible Spirit, through a burning bush and burning hearts. Hear from some of the most well-known Christians in history about how God speaks to them, and discover for yourself how you can discern the voice of God.

A decade ago, Priscilla Shirer authored Discerning the Voice of God, and since then God has continued to grow, teach, and challenge her in her walk with Him. This revised and expanded edition reflects that growth through new stories, illustrations, and exercises.

Through 7 sessions, discover the root to clear and daily communication with God - humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life.

Women's Discipleship

Discipleship seeks to equip women who are mature in their faith to be used by God through personal ministry and empower them to do God's work and then disciple others. 

If you're ready to dig deeper into God's Word and develop meaningful relationships in a small group for women, please consider Discipleship. This concept is based on spiritual multiplication. Disciples multiply!

This will be a minimal commitment of one year, but may be longer and the group size is limited. Advanced sign-up is required.

Tuesdays | 6:30-8:30 pm | Burlington Campus | FC106

Please not the current group is full. Please contact Kristen if you're interested in starting or joining a future discipleship group.
