Welcome to First Temple Women’s Ministry

At First Temple  we want our women to seek to:
Unify Women to build a caring community where all discover and develop their God-given gifts.
Connect women by offering meaningful relationships, accountability, and acceptance.
Serve to reach others for Christ locally and globally.

Everyone needs to be part of a community. Women are no different. We were created by God to enjoy Him and to come alongside one another – sharing life, laughter, struggles and faith. That is the goal of First Temple Women.

We offer many avenues for women to grow in their relationship with God and in fellowship with each other. Our women’s ministry is designed to meet the needs of women at every stage of life, whether they are single, married, moms of toddlers, or empty-nesters. We encourage and inspire women to live compassionate and courageous lives that impact the culture around them.
