We are a community that strives to encourage women. We offer women many opportunities to grow in their faith as well as discover supportive relationships with other women. There is a wide range of ages and life experiences among the women who attend.


Women’s Break Bible study meets every Tuesday, September to May. Morning Break is 9-11:15 am and Evening Break is 6:45-8:30 pm. Newcomers are always welcome.

We study the Word of God together and pray for each other.

We meet in the Common Grounds room on the north side of the main church facility. (Enter the double glass doors at the four step stairwell at the north front entrance. There is also a handicap ramp at this entrance as well.)  Childcare is provided


A group meets monthly on a Friday night in the Common Grounds Room (7 pm to 10pm.) This is a chance for women to bring any desired project, such as scrapbooking or a knitting project. It’s a great way to work on a project while enjoying the company of other women. Contact Donna for more information.
