BOLD Women

BOLD Women is a women's ministry, aimed at connecting women of all generations through workshops, service and fun. BOLD Women events are open to all women - middle school age to 110! They provide an opportunity for women to connect and share with, learn from and care for each other. BOLD Women events focus on learning and spiritual growth, service to others or sometimes just having fun and getting to know each other better.

Women's Bible Study

Women's Bible study meets the third Thursday of each month, at 10:30 am, and is led by Sunni Richardson, Director of Discipleship. The Bible study uses the Women of the ELCA study found in The Gather magazine. For more information, contact Sunni Richardson. Women of all ages are welcome!

Women of the ELCA

Women of the ELCA are “a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ. As women empowered by the Holy Spirit, the Women of the ELCA are committed to grow in faith, affirm their gifts, support each person in their calling, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, society and the world.”

At First Lutheran women have an opportunity to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ through circles, Bible study, service projects, Synodical gatherings and special events. All women are welcome!
