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.

Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

Looking for Lovely (Women's Table Group)


St. Joseph Campus, Wednesday mornings, 9:30am-11:15am - starts January 9th

St. Joseph Campus, Wednesday evenings, 6:30pm-8:00pm - starts January 9th


In Looking for Lovely, Annie F. Downs shares personal stories, biblical truth, and examples of how others have courageously walked the path God paved for their lives by remembering all God had done, loving what was right in front of them, and seeing God in the everyday—whether that be nature, friends, or the face they see in the mirror.

Intensely personal, yet incredibly powerful, Looking for Lovely will spark transformative conversations and life changing patterns. No matter who you are and what path God has you on, we all need to remember the lovely, fight to finish, and find beautiful in our every day!

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.
