The mission of our Women’s Ministry is to help women relax from the daily grind, renew their relationship with God, and reconnect with the women of First Christian Church. Our events are designed to help us pull away – from noise, hurry, multitasking, and chaos – and grow closer to God through times of worship, teaching, laughter, and celebration. We welcome women of all ages and stages to participate in our events.
"Why Not You Today" Women's Conference
FRIDAY, MARCH 10 AT 6PM
The Women’s Ministries of First Christian Church are SO excited to be hosting the "Why Not You Today" conference led by Sonya Jones, finalist of The Biggest Loser, with guest speaker Courtney Westlake.
Come join us for a girls’ night out of worship and encouragement! The overall theme of the conference is pouring into the lives of women and sharing the message of how when the circumstances of life can be very difficult, when we choose to surrender them into the hands of Jesus, our stories can be turned into a beautiful thing. This would be a great event to invite a friend, neighbor, or coworker!
The event will be held in the East Auditorium at First Christian Church at 6pm. Doors open at 5:30pm.
Tickets can be purchased for $15 at iTickets.com. We've already sold out of the tickets that the church office had.
Sorry, childcare is unavailable.

MOPS & MOMSnext
1ST & 3RD THURSDAY FROM 9-11:15AM
BEGINS SEPTEMBER 1, 2016
MOPS stands for "mothers of preschoolers", but don't let that confuse you. MOPS is about meeting the needs of every mom of a child from birth through preschool. MOPS creates an atmosphere of encouragement and hope for moms in all walks of life. Your child is cared for in a program called MOPPETS where they experience love in a preschool-like setting. If you are a home-school mom with older children, we offer a study hall for elementary kids. Make sure to indicate on your registration form if you will need the home-school study hall and number of children. Questions? Contact Heather at email@example.com.
STARTS AGAIN WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2016
MomsNEXT is geared towards moms with school age children. MomsNEXT recognizes that when our children enter the world of peers, homework, and teachers, we as parents are no longer the only influence vying for our children. For this reason, prayer and being grounded in God’s Word becomes even more essential as we begin the gradual process of “letting go”. Programming is available for your children. Also, MomsNEXT participants are invited to attend the MOPS meetings the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month (see info above). Questions? Contact Tabitha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
