To glorify God and to serve Christ's kingdom in this church body by encouraging and equipping all of our women to think biblically and to live as spiritually maturing followers of Jesus Christ. We want to exhibit a deep love for God and people that results in a commitment to minister in our homes, church, community and our world.
We desire to do this by:
Emphasizing the biblical philosophy of womanhood as the foundation for developing godly, feminine Christian women. (We used the Biblical passage in Titus 3 and many others, Pastor Bill taught a series on Biblical Womanhood, plus our leadership read many books on the subject, many authored by Susan Hunt.) "It is time for women of biblical faith to reclaim our territory. We know the Designer. We have His instruction manual. If we don’t display the Divine design of His female creation, no one will. But if we do, it will be a profound testimony to a watching, needy world.” (Susan Hunt)
Giving a unifying vision of purpose that allows women to join together in spiritual growth (Bible studies) and service (meeting practical needs and outreach.)
Providing a relational format that connects women with women (casual events, Ladies’ retreat.)
