Women’s Ministry

Women’s Ministry at FPC is a grace-filled community of women from all seasons and walks of life. We share life’s joys and struggles in the context of how God is using every circumstance to mold us into Christ’s image. We would love for you to be a part of our community as we seek Christ and learn to serve and love God and each other well.

Opportunities for Moms

Tuesday Morning Group
Tuesdays | Begins Sept 12 | 8:15–9 AM | Living Room

Join other moms this fall as we meet God Himself in the parable of the Prodigal Son. Using Tim Keller’s book, The Prodigal God, we will spend six weeks studying God’s immutable nature and how it leads to His deep and unchanging love for His children. The love that we find in God frees us to love Him in return and love our own children by His example! Childcare provided.

Tuesday Evening Group
Tuesdays | Begins Sept 12 | 8-9 PM | Online

Do you feel insecure in how best to equip your children for this world and all it throws at them? Are you desperate to see God move in your family? Do you find yourself worn out by trying to “fix” situations around you? If so, you are not alone. Join other mamas as we encourage one another to make prayer our first and best response on this adventure of motherhood. Using Brooke McGlothlin’s book, Praying Mom, we will spend the fall semester praying for our fellow moms and their children.

Wednesday Morning KDO Group
Wednesdays | Begins Sept 13 | 9:15-10:30 AM | CE 141

As declared by the Surgeon General, our country is experiencing an epidemic of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. As we hope to help our children, we must also examine our own anxious tendencies. Join moms from KDO, FPC, and the Houston community as we learn to uncover the roots of our own anxiety, process it in healthy ways rather than passing it on, model bravery, and connect more deeply with our kids. Embark on this exciting journey towards living in confidence—so our kids can, too! Childcare provided.
