WinGS (Women in Gods Service), formerly known as Presbyterian Women, is for women of any age or stage of life who seek to study the Bible, engage in mission work, and/or enjoy Christian fellowship with other women.
WinGS also holds at least three programs each year to which all women are invited: a two-day retreat in February, a Saturday spring breakfast, and a Christmas Tea early in December. We invite an inspirational or informational speaker to each of these annual events and incorporate lots of time for fellowship. Click here to read the WinGS brochure and learn more.
For more information about any WinGS program, please contact Pamela Jensen, Moderator of WinGS, or click on any Women's Ministry page.
Moms and kids have a special bond. In the midst of sippy cups and bottles, we are constantly dealing with thirst. We need to be refreshed daily in our role as a nurturer. We gain strength through Christ's living waters as we gather together. Ministry of Motherhood (MOMs) is a group designed for mothers of children school-aged and younger. We meet every Thursday morning from 9:30 - 11:15 am. This group is a wonderful way to meet other moms, share common experiences, participate in service to others, attend group discussions and enjoy activities with your child.

Learn more about MOMs.
On the second and fourth Thursday of the month, MOMs is discussion-oriented. There is free childcare provided in the Nursery with a very qualified staff if you choose to use it. Some moms choose to keep younger babies with them during discussion and this is fine as well. It is a chance to share the challenges and victories of motherhood with other parents. We seek inspiration from each other through discussion, prayer and insight from group leaders, as we navigate the path of parenthood. We are a group committed to raising children in Christ’s love and care.
- Sprout School: Mommy & Me Class
On the Thursdays that MOMs is NOT held (1st, 3rd and 5th Thursdays of the month), parents with infants through preschool age are welcome to come join the fun in a parent/child class! We start with some open play, then move on to Bible stories, crafts, songs and snacks. It’s a Sunday School-like class to share with your child at whatever level they are able. The class meets from 9:30-11:15 am and is free.
- Girls' Night Out
Once a month, leave the kids at home with Dad and head out for a refreshing evening with the girls. We meet at local restaurants around 8:00 pm (or whenever you can get away) for dinner, drinks, dessert, or simply a cup of coffee. We all need an evening out once in a while!
- Mission Projects
We do several Mission Projects throughout the year. Childcare is provided if needed. Projects can include putting together gift baskets for new moms in the church, making Valentine cards for church members in need of some love, and making pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer which brightens spirits of hospitalized children.
Women who want to use their skills with a sewing needle or knitting needles to construct tangible expressions of Christian love are warmly invited to join the Needlecrafters or Prayer Shawl ministry. Our long-standing group of Needlecrafters, which meets on Mondays, stitches items for the church, the nursery school, and our mission partners. Another group of women meet every other Monday afternoon to knit prayer shawls for members and friends of our congregation who are suffering from illness or trauma and need comfort and prayer. Ruth Dudt and Linda Teets, respectively, are the organizers of these two groups.
We sponsor an active bible study program on Wednesdays, with classes on different topics at 6:45 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and noon. No prior experience in bible study is required to join any of these groups, only a desire to grow spiritually with other women at WPC. Join us at a time that works for you, come when you can, and see how God meets you and helps you grow in faith. More detailed information about the studies can be found in the WinGS brochure and the 2019 Spring flyer. Angela Tait coordinates the Women’s Bible Study program.
