women's ministry

Our mission is to lovingly serve God and the women of this church and community by praying, learning together, enjoying, caring for and serving one another. With Scripture as our guide, we desire to become more Christ-like. We seek to enable each woman to be known and loved and fulfilled in her calling as an individual, family member, and friend.

The Women's Ministry team organizes a great many activities throughout the year. There are Bible studies, times of fellowship and learning, and times just to relax and enjoy time together, such as the annual Women's Luncheon and "Soul Saturday." Our weekly Morning Break, held from September through May, is a regular meeting place for the women of OICC. Other meetings and small groups are held throughout the week.
