To strengthen the church family by providing opportunities for women to connect, study and serve as part of the body of Christ at First Pres.


Tammy Emerson is the current moderator for the Women of the Church Council.

Bible Study Opportunities

Women in the Word is a Bible study for women of all ages. We meet on Thursday mornings from 9:30-11:30am in the Fellowship Hall from September-December and January-April. Free registered childcare is available by calling Penny Arnold at 622-5160. Come and join in our friendly Christian fellowship and Bible study.


Fellowship Opportunities

Sisters in Christ Fellowship Groups meet once a month for Fellowship, Friendship and Fun. There are twelve different groups that meet almost every day of the week, some during the day and some in the evening. We have groups of young mom's that meet, some with babies and children and some with childcare. If you are interested in getting to know others and getting connected, please contact Sara McDonnell at 622-8818. Let us know the times you are available to meet and we will find a fellowship group for you.

Morning Circle meets monthly for a small group Bible studies with fellowship and refreshments. The circle meets on a Tuesday in various homes. See the Bulletin for dates and locations.

We at First Presbyterian desire all the women of the church to be involved. If you would like to be a member of a committee that plans events or be part of the council, please contact Sara McDonnell.

Service Opportunities

We regularly collect diapers and baby wipes for First Care Crisis Pregnancy Center and we also have an annual shower for their benefit.

We have a Prayer Shawl Ministry on the 2nd Monday of each month at 2 pm in the Library. Join others in knitting or crocheting prayer shawls for others. If you don't know how to do either, we will teach you!
