Ladies Ministry

ladies ministry webOur Ladies Ministry is a vital part of our congregation. They focus on growing in the knowledge of the Lord, supporting one another and serving others.

Two ladies only Bible classes are offered. One is on Tuesday mornings where they study, fellowship and do service projects. The other is on Wednesday night during regular Bible classes. In this class, a book is selected and various ladies teach the chapters. The Wednesday class breaks for the summer and attends our Adult Summer Series.

The ladies plan a special time of Spiritual focus during their Fall Ladies Day at Buford and Spring Ladies Retreat in the North Georgia Mountains.

Our ladies continue to support the congregational needs as teachers, nursery staff, hosting showers, visiting, meeting the needs of our members and more.

We hope you will look for ways to get involved in our Ladies Ministry.
