Women's Ministry

The 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. 

Childcare is available on Tuesdays from 9am–12:30pm at a cost of $5 per mom/week by reservation.

For information on any of our groups and events you may contact Valerie Arredondo at women@fpchouston.org or call 713-620-6507.

Intergenerational Women's Event

Bounded Freedom: The Importance Of "No" In The Lives Of Christian Women
Wednesday / May 2, 2018 / 6-8:30pm / LC181

Busyness is not a spiritual gift! Lives that are over busy are a common struggle for women. In order to be faithful and joyful in what we say yes to, we need the wisdom and courage to sometimes say "no." Please join us as licensed professional counselor, Sarah Burkhart, leads a discussion on boundaries, common pitfalls of Christian women, and the importance of saying “No”. Join us to break bread together and share in worship, discussion and prayer. Invite a friend or neighbor to join you in this sweet time of community. Childcare available by reservation. $5 at the door. Heavy appetizer refreshments served.

Women's Fellowship Circles

Women's Fellowship Circles welcome all women who want to visit. Our nine circles meet at FPC or in homes once a month. We share in mission, Bible study and friendship. The Bible studies are led by circle members who are taught by church pastors and staff on a monthly basis. We also have a mission focus each month that helps local ministries such as Main Street Ministries, The Nehemiah Center, the Seafarers' Center at the Port of Houston and the Harris Health Services supporting Ben Taub.
