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.

Entrusted: Women's Mentoring Ministry

We believe that spiritual mentoring relationships are vital to the body of Christ and an important tool in discipleship and spiritual growth, for both the mentor and the mentee.

Entrusted seeks to connect the women of FPC for one-on-one mentoring with the goal of encouragement and nurture in life's challenges and in their relationship with Jesus Christ. The women commit to meeting every other week for a minimum of six months. If you would like more information or if you are looking to be connected with a mentor, contact women@fpchouston.org.

Join other FPC women every Thursday (except Thanksgiving) as we make and distribute sandwiches together for the EAC, an interfaith association of congregations committed to promoting self-sufficiency to low-income families in Harris County. We provide them with basic needs such as food and clothing. It’s a great time for fellowship among friends while giving back to the community.

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.
