Women are pulled in many different directions these days. There are internal and external expectations that weary our hearts, minds, and bodies.

Whether you are a full-time employee, full-time homemaker, or looking for your next life step, our hours are full.

So...wherever you find yourself, we want to come alongside and encourage you in your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Goal: Provide quality opportunities for women to CONNECT with each other, GROW as we study God's word, SERVE their church and community, and REACH out to others.

Look through the opportunities below...

MOMS - Making Our Mothering Significant

This is a weekly Tuesday ministry for moms with children of all ages. The mission of MOMS is to help mothers connect with each other in meaningful relationships, learn marriage & parenting skills, and grow in their relationship with the Lord.

To pursue this mission MOMS features large group sessions with motivating and inspiring guest speakers, small group settings focusing on bible study, prayer, and community, and a mentoring dynamic that offers support and encouragement.

Recharge Moms

Recharge Moms

  • 2 Thursdays each month
  • 9:15-11:15am

RECHARGE is designed to build bridges to young moms in our community by providing a place for them to connect, receive encouragement, and leave with increased confidence in their role as mothers.

The first years of mothering are hard. We are told to cherish these years, which pass all too quickly. The years may pass quickly, but the days can seem to crawl! That’s why Moms need other moms to make it through these years. That’s what RECHARGE is all about; giving mothers a chance to connect with each other. While connecting we’ll have some fun, hear a speaker, enjoy some food, and maybe even make a Pinterest-inspired craft.
