Women At FPC

Women's Ministry at FPC is a grace-filled community of women from all seasons and walks of life.

Women's Fellowship Circles

Women's Fellowship Circles will begin our circle meetings in September. Our study this year will be Warren Wiersbe's Isaiah: Feeling Secure in the Arms of God. 
Our eight circles will meet via Zoom 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. 

WFC will not meet in the summer.
