Women’s Ministry is a grace-filled community of women from all seasons and walks of life; sharing life’s joys and struggles in the context of how God is using every circumstance to mold us into Christ’s image. These women study God’s Word, pray, and serve the community together. By faith and God’s grace, in large and small ways, they are women of the Word reaching out to women in the world.
Presbyterian Women (PW), the national women's organization of the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA), is also a community of women from all seasons and walks of life, and every woman at FPC is automatically a member. Join a PW Circle for Bible study and fellowship with other women. For more information click on the link below.

Centering Prayer is a time of communion with God, incorporating Lectio Divina, when we give ourselves to God for a short time without the distractions of the everyday world.
It is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us. It is where we come to sit in silence before the Lord and offer Him ourselves. This method of prayer is a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Him.
Lectio Divina literally means “divine reading” and is an ancient practice of praying the scriptures. During Lectio Divina, the practitioner listens to the text of the Bible with the “ear of the heart.” The method of Lectio Divina includes moments of reading (lectio), reflecting on (meditatio), responding to (oratio) and resting in (contemplatio) the Word of God. For more information, please contact Lesley Lilly at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
