Women's Ministries seeks to glorify God by providing opportunities for women to be encouraged in their Christian walk, reaching out together to our community with the Good News of the Gospel, sponsoring projects locally in support of our missionaries all over the world, and providing a place for women to come together, encourage one another, and build deep, lasting friendships. A primary focus of Women's Ministries is outreach -- to provide a place where women can bring friends and family members to meet and to see the body of Christ in action. To this end, we provide a variety of events -- some explicitly evangelistic and others low-key, where women can come and hear about Jesus and see how He affects His daughters' lives. The following are just some of the opportunities specifically for women:
- Women’s Connect
Meets the 3rd Saturday of the month from 8-9:30am in the lower sun-room. Check the calendar or call the office to find out when we will be meeting next. Join our early morning multi-generational-focused gathering to share your life, get inspiration from the Word, and pray for each other. No cost, commitment, or prep, just bring yourself and a bag breakfast if desired. Whether there are only 4 or 14 of us, it will be a time of rich conversation either way.
- Small Groups
We have groups of women that meet regularly for bible study, accountability, to connect and to pray. Contact the office for more information on current women's small groups.
Our annual NEDA women's retreat is held at Camp Spofford in Spofford, NH, on a weekend in September, Friday to Sunday. All are welcome for any or all of the retreat -- even if you can only come for the day. We also host an in house women's day retreat annually.
- Baby Showers
Held for women who are engaged or celebrating the birth of their first child at Faith EFC. Another reason for a get together!
- Newcomers’ Teas
We use this annual event to bring new and old friends together!
- Book Club Meetings
Meet whenever you have read an interesting book that you would like to discuss with other women.
- Craft Workshops
Held intermittently based on interest...Workshops have included: knitting/sewing, scrap booking, quilting, and Christmas centerpieces
