We offer a variety of ways to encourage women and strengthen their faith, as well as provide opportunities to use their talents and gifts to serve God and his people.
Our three Women’s Ministry branches are:
Women to Women, Bible Studies, and Specialty Groups
Women to Women
Women to Women
This group holds several events throughout the year to provide opportunities for fellowship. They organize events and activities for building relationships, mutual encouragement, and providing spiritual and social support to the women of FPC and the North Shore.
Ladies, it’s finally here!! Our 2018 Women’s Retreat:
“What is Your Story? Making Sense of Your Place in God’s Epic Drama”
This year we will be going to a new location on Lake Winnipesaukee called The Margate on April 7 and 8. Our new location offers us enough space to all fit within the same hotel, an indoor pool, plenty of meeting space with floor to ceiling lake views, a hot breakfast buffet and best of all, all double occupancy rooms have two beds!
This year we are thrilled to announce that our speaker will be Dr. Gwenfair Adams, Associate Professor of Church History, and the Director of the Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation at Gordon- Conwell Theological Seminary.
Please register as soon as you are able as the hotel will release our rooming block to the public by March 19th (that’s only three weeks away!). As always there is an optional second night, as well as limited scholarships.
Contact Esther Baird or Jenna Higgins with any questions!
Our women’s ministry also offers a weekly Bible study for more intentional fellowship and spiritual growth as women gather to discuss how God’s word and their lives intersect.
Our next Bible study will occur on Friday mornings from March 16-May 11 from 9:15-11:15 am at our Danvers office (67 High Street, Suite 8U). Childcare is provided! We will be studying Francis Chan’s book, The Forgotten God, along with Scripture that aligns with each week’s material. There is optional homework outside of the meetings.

We currently offer two ongoing Specialty Groups:
Spiritual Growth Book Clubs
These clubs provide an opportunity for spiritual growth and development through short but intentional book studies. They are facilitated by women skilled in helping other women asses their strengths, learning needs, and ministry applications. A secondary objective is to create an environment where women can build new relationships and connect across age/career/marital/parenting lines.
When: Monday Evenings, 7:00-8:30 pm, (March 12-April 16)
Where: FPC Danvers Office (67 Hight Street, Suite 8U, Danvers)
What: A discussion of Simplify: Ten Practices to Unclutter Your Soul, by Bill Hybels.

Moving On After Moving In.
This is a Christ-centered, 8-session, small group study aimed at helping women cope with the challenges, emotions, and losses of a move and equipping them to put down roots in a new place. It is based on the book, “After the Boxes are Unpacked: Moving On After Moving In”, by Susan Miller, president of the “Just Moved Ministry” (www.just-moved.org). The study addresses emotional struggles and opportunities for spiritual growth as women start afresh in new communities.
When: Sunday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 pm on the 2nd floor of the Ipswich Campus CLC. Next session date coming soon.
