Women's Ministry

Women At FPC

The 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. 

The members of the women's ministry share God's Word, pray together and come together to serve the community. By faith and God's grace, in large and small ways, we 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 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.

Opportunities for Women

Women's Prayer Gathering

Thursday May 2 2019, 10am–11:30am  | LC 080 Middle School Basement | Light lunch immediately afterward.

Childcare available by registration for $5 per family at the door. Childcare registration deadline April 25

Often we find ourselves running on overtime and pulled in a million directions trying to care for so many around us. With the May/June busyness just around the corner, this reality can be even more magnified and often we can find ourselves running on empty.
We invite you to take a moment to breathe and soak in the presence of our loving Lord surrounded by your sisters in Christ as we come together alongside one another and lift up our prayers in unity.

We will have a time to sit in the presence of the Lord and soak in all His goodness, worship His name with beautiful song, privately confess our sins and experience His forgiveness, pray aloud over our sisters and our own concerns, come into agreeance for one another, and have a sweet time of fellowship.
It is such a gift to join with other women in the name of Christ and we would love to have you there with us.

RSVP here.

Contact Valerie at women@fpchouston.org or call 713-620-6507 if you have any questions.

We hope that you will seize this opportunity to partake in a beautiful time of togetherness along other faithful women and leave being touched by the presence of the Holy Spirit.

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.
