What is the purpose of the Women’s Ministry at FCF?
There is the simple truth that women have always clustered together in every setting. We naturally gravitate to each other. There are feminine issues and topics that are unique to women which is why the fellowship, mentoring and accountability of other women is important. It’s the way God made us and it’s good!
Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good and to train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
This is a mandate from Scripture, that women teach women, that we encourage each other, that we train young women in the faith to be “big girls for Jesus. It’s a ministry that can only be adequately filled woman to woman.
The purpose for the Women’s Ministry of this church is to fulfill this spiritual directive as best we can, to encourage and equip women to be everything God has called them to be. We do this through special events, through mentoring relationships, through opportunities for service, through times of learning and fellowship, through spiritual formation, and through programs that reach out beyond our walls.
The vision of the Women's Ministry is to be a community connecting with God & caring for people. Our hope is that every person (woman) who comes into contact with the family of friends of Freedom Christian Fellowship will have an unforgettable encounter of encouragement as we reflect the power and grace of God. Relationships do not just happen. They are pursued and produced through love and sincere affections. God has revealed His love to us through His Son, and it is our passion to share that love through genuine care and concern for others. Our Women's Ministries include Wednesday night women's Bible studies, prayer groups, Apples of Gold, retreats and conferences, and meetings at the church and in homes.
