Women's Ministries

Women's Ministries Interest Form - Let us help you get connected with what's going on in Women's Ministries here at First Free!

Whether it's gathering together around the Word, serving others together, or just connecting over your latest project there are many opportunities for women to meet and encourage one another in growing as disciples of Jesus Christ.

We also have a number of special women's events throughout the year---watch The Weekly for details on events like the Gala in the Garden, Traditions Tea, and others! 

Women's Bible Study
Began Tuesday, September 13, 2022
Tuesday mornings, 9:15-11:30  OR  Tuesday evenings, 7-8:30

If Tuesdays aren’t an option for you, let’s figure out another time to connect with women around God’s Word. Cost is $8 for the book, scholarships available.

Psalms: Finding the Way to Prayer and Praise
The psalms are at heart of God’s redemptive story as they express the heartfelt prayers and praise of a people in need of a Redeemer God, looking to the deliverance through the promised King of Kings, Jesus. As we find ourselves in the midst of a chaotic world, these psalms promise to be a balm for our hearts helping us to listen well to God’s voice that mercifully speaks to us in his Word. In this second volume of Kathleen Nielson’s Psalms study we will have the opportunity each week to look closely and dig deeply into two similarly themed psalms. Peering into these living and active words should pierce our hearts while also feeding our souls. The morning session will spend time in a large group for singing and teaching as well as small groups for discussion, plus time in prayer and connection with one another as sisters-in-Christ. Tuesday evening sessions are available in an intergenerational, small group format meeting in homes.

Please contact Jo Coltrain about joining a group.

Mothers of Children with Special Needs Bible Study
Second and Fourth Tuesdays, 6:30 pm
Contact: Evanelle Olinger
If you have a child with special needs, visible or not, come meet with other moms who desire to grow in their knowledge of God, learn to put on his character, and live in relationship with others as disciples of Jesus Christ. Contact Evanelle for more details.
