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.

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 with a current summer special!
Summer Playground Playgroups
Join other moms (dads are ok too) each Tuesday from 9:30 – 11:15 (ish) at a different playground on the North Shore! See this list with dates and playgrounds and just note that persistent rain cancels. Invite a friend, pray to meet new parents and their kids, and let’s get outside together! Join our Facebook page, “Playground Playgroup 2018” for more information and time-sensitive updates.
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.
Contact: Katie Hightower (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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: session date coming soon.
