Ministry for Women of all ages at First Church

If you're married or single, a working or stay-at-home mom, busy with babies or an empty nester, our hope is that you will connect with women of all ages.


Through Bible studies, special events, friendship, and service we are here to provide opportunities that will help you grow closer to God, and to join others on this path.

Women at First Church

Women at First Church is a non-denominational women’s study group that offers table groups during Wednesday morning, Wednesday evening and other times throughout the week.

Just for Joy has been connecting women in the community for more than 20 years–as they grow in Christ.

If you're a mom with kids, Just for Kids is a Bible-based children's program for children ages 2-5 years old that's offered during our Wednesday Morning Bible studies. Also, KidZone WOW (Worship on Wednesdays) is offered for all kids during Wednesday night studies at the St. Joseph Campus.

Chase: Chasing after the heart of God By Jennie Allen

Wednesday mornings 9:30am–11:15am or

Wednesday evenings 6:30pm–8:00pm (St. Joseph or Stevensville Campus)

Saturday mornings 9:00am-11:00am (begins Sept. 22)


We are all chasing after something, something that will fill us up, make us happy. But, if we are honest it feels like we never quite get what we are looking for. King David’s life is woven throughout scripture and from his example we see a man that spent his life chasing after God. This study will take us on a journey using the life of David as an example. We will begin the fall semester by chasing after God together, learning from David and encouraging each other while carving out space in our hearts that only God can fill! 

Women of the Church of God

The WCG–a national organization of the Church of God–began 84 years ago as the Woman’s Missionary Society. We exist to serve Christ through serving women and equipping them for ministry. The national name changed in 2009 to Christian Women Connection–a place for every woman where every woman takes her place. In St. Joseph we have chosen to keep the WCG name.


Our ladies serve fellowship meals following funerals. We gather materials and send Love Bundles to Haiti. The annual Christ’s Birthday Offering is sponsored by the WCG and goes to mission causes worldwide.


Meetings are the first Tuesday of each month at 1:00 pm except in July, August, and September we meet in the evening. All women of the church are invited to attend.
