Dear friend,
PC Women are making an impact in their homes, in our faith family, our Valley, and beyond… “Helping people see God and participate in His redemptive story.” Our purpose is to offer ways for you cultivate a deeper relationship with God, to grow in relationships with other women and to give you tools to reach out to others and share His love. We have different backgrounds and life experiences…some are single, some married; we are diverse in age and ethnicity. Yet we celebrate the common ground we have as sisters in Christ because we have experienced the redeeming work of the Lord Jesus Christ in our lives. Whether young or not so young, brand new in the faith or someone who has walked with the Lord for years… we all need each other. You are invited to look through the ministries, and join us on the exciting journey of walking with the Lord together.
With love, Shirley Barber  and the Women’s Ministries Team.
