Women At FPC

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 Women

Women's Prayer Gathering

Thursday Nov 14  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 November 7

Often we find ourselves running on overtime and pulled in a million directions trying to care for so many around us. With the holiday 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.
You can register now at the link below:

Contact Valerie at women@fpchouston.org or call 713-620-6507 for 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.
