The purpose of Women’s Ministries at ABEFC is to meet the spiritual needs of the women of our church through Bible studies, counseling, discipleship, prayer support, special events, and other on-going opportunities for spiritual and personal growth. It is our desire to see all of the women of ABEFC grow to spiritual maturity through sound biblical instruction; to provide them with opportunities to exercise their spiritual gifts and talents; to promote lasting friendships between women; and to develop leadership skills in our women so that we may “pass the baton” to the next generation.
We hope that you will enthusiastically join us as we strive together to “walk worthy of our calling.”
