Welcome to Women’s Ministry
We are here to serve you because we believe women are designed by God to meet the needs of other women. Our purpose is to encourage women to develop and maintain a vital relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer, Bible study, outreach activities, and service.
Women’s Fellowship Happenings
Various events are offered throughout the year to allow women to become better acquainted, meet new people, and fellowship. These events for 2020 include our Spring Event, April 25, a Summer Salad Potluck Luncheon on July 25, a Holiday Craft Fair* on November 6-7, and a Christmas Event on December 12. Please save the dates for these incredible events and sign up early as they fill up fast.
*Holiday Craft Faire and Bake Sale: Crafters from Northern California have beautiful handmade, unique holiday and gift items. The famous bake sale proceeds go to Women’s Ministry Charities.
Opportunities for Service
Helping Hands provides meals for those within the church family in times of illness or difficulty, and during bereavement.
Prayer Shawl Ministry: Women gather to knit and crochet prayer shawls to be given to those who are going through difficulties.
Craft Faire Bake Sale: Baked goods are needed for the bake sale at the craft faire in November. All proceeds go to Women’s Ministry charities.
Friendship Interest Groups
The purpose of these groups is to encourage women to enrich friendships through mutual interest and shared activities. It is hoped that each participant will develop new and lasting friendships as they enjoy the activities and share the love of Jesus.
Mixed Media: Create art projects with a variety of media and materials.
Ladies ‘N Stitches & More: Work on quilting and needlework projects with experienced helpers.
Card and Craft Creations: Learn the art of card making and special craft creations. There is a small materials fee.

Women of the Word Bible Studies have just begun. There are two sessions each year providing for spiritual growth and understanding. Call the church at 916-408-3800 for more information.
Newcomers Welcome Lunch
Each quarter we set aside time to acquaint women with our church and the women’s ministry events and activities. New attendees and those interested in meeting and fellowshipping with other women in the church, are invited to attend the Newcomers Welcome Lunch. These luncheons will be held quarterly, in the church foyer. The dates for these events are February 19, May 20, August 19, and November 18. For more information, call the church office at 916-408-3800.
We welcome you to participate in the activities and events.
