Purpose of the Women of the Church

The purpose of the Women of the Church is to glorify God. We provide avenues for personal spiritual growth and the development of spiritual gifts, expressing our God-given compassion through fellowship, prayer support, and care and assistance in time of need, thus equipping and touching the lives of women who in like manner share the love of Christ with families, the community, the nation and the world.
