First Women seek to win women to Christ and encourage them to grow in their relationship with God and others by providing opportunities for spiritual growth, close fellowship, meaningful service and effectual outreach.
Celebrating “The Sweet Life”
For we are to God the sweet aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and to those who are perishing. (2 Cor. 2:15).
Our prayer for 2018 is the WOMEN OF FIRST will be the fragrance of Christ in our church and community.
