Women’s Ministry is a gathering place for women to encourage one another and be inspired and challenged to know God.

Women’s Ministry

Women’s Ministry at First Woodway is vibrant and growing, and we would love to meet you. We want to encourage you in your walk with Christ through prayer groups, Bible studies, weekend retreats, conferences, day trips, opportunities to serve, and more.

Not Alone
Not Alone is a gathering for single moms… a place to find deep fellowship and encouragement with other single moms. We will dig deep into God’s Word and learn that not only will we survive, but our journey is an opportunity to know God in a whole new way and abide more closely with Him. Not Alone is a place where we can be real – acknowledging and seeking help for practical needs such as time away from the kids, financial guidance, and being the spiritual leader of our homes. We are currently meeting in home groups. Please contact Doris King with any questions.

Bible Studies
The Discipleship Ministry offers a number of women-only studies (in addition to co-ed studies), meeting on Wednesday nights, during the weekday, plus an off-site evening study. These small groups offer a great way to make new friends and fellowship with other women while being held accountable to dig deep into the Word of God!
