Our Purpose Statement

“As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.”

Are you a faithful friend?

Build community with our Faithful Friends program

Our community of women called to discipleship in Jesus Christ is built on a foundation of friendship, faithfulness, and hope for our future together. But the global COVID-19 pandemic is starting to undermine that foundation. You can help firm up our foundation of faith and hope by joining Faithful Friends, our monthly giving program.
