Our goal is to provide a safe place for women to meet, share, learn and grow as we "live out” our Christian faith together. We understand the value and power that comes from living in community. The friendships we make here will be the friendships we can rely on when we get back into the "Trenches" of life.
Connecting women from every season of life in authentic experiences of friendship, service to others and spiritual growth in Christ. To advance God’s kingdom through ministries that encourage, equip and empower women in their Christian journey.
