Cultivate a Christ-centered sisterhood

Our Women’s Ministry exists so that we might come to know God, ourselves and our sisters in Christ more intimately. Our hope is that each woman at OCF may experience the LOVE and GRACE of God, who calls us His beloved daughters. We desire to find our grounding in Christ and to live out of this grounding as a response to God’s love for us. We invite you to come be a part of what God is doing in the hearts of our women.

Women have more responsibility in society than ever before. We work, support, educate, and raise children. Learning how to balance our busy lives and still live Christ-centered takes practice. Together we can grow stronger and build each other up.

In order to help one another become this kind of woman, the Women’s Ministry at OCF offers large group get-togethers (for making initial connections), small groups (for instruction, discussion and growth), and one-on-one discipleship (for accountability and encouragement).
