Here are some opportunities where you can get connected:

  • Fellowship gatherings throughout the year
  • Quarterly service projects
  • Women Of Worth – Single women whether widows, divorced, or never married, meet together quarterly for fellowship and encouragement

WOW Ministry

Otherwise known as Women of Worth, this ministry is an outgrowth of the widow’s ministry that has grown to include other single women whether never married or divorced. We find our worth in being betrothed to Christ, preparing to be His bride. We have quarterly gatherings throughout the year for fellowship, support and encouragement. Our facilitators are:

On the fourth Wednesday of each month for 3 hours in the morning, a small group of us meet at a local church to cook and pack food for folks in our community who are in need of meals. If you enjoy cooking and fellowship, please consider joining our team—you pick your Wednesdays!

Leaving the Cocoon exists to assist incarcerated women in the Nashville, TN, prison. We provide mentors, one-on-one lay counseling, and Bible study. In order to go into the prison, you must do some training and get a volunteer badge.
