Women's Ministry

Our Women's Ministry has been blessed with opportunities to minister to the Native American children in New Mexico and Arizona along side Blue Lakes Baptist Church from Norman, Oklahoma.  This summer we had 60 children at Vacation Bible School in New Mexico. Our ministry group has fun meeting to prepare personalized gifts for the children that we send them each Christmas and Easter to let them know that not only do we love them and pray for them and their families, but most importantly that God loves them and sent His son to die for us all.  

We also support the women on the Reservation through fundraisers and parties to sell their beautiful handmade jewelry. Please call the church office and leave a message for Christina if you would like to learn more about this.

We also have several women's Bible studies throughout the year.  Our next study is Priscilla Shirer, Discerning the Voice of God, to begin the end of October. Check back for more information and dates to be posted soon.  If you have any questions, please contact Cathy Gregory at
