Women’s Ministries meets regularly to plan activities and programs for the coming year. We hope that women of all ages—single or married—will take advantage of the opportunities we are offering this year for Bible study, fellowship, support and good, old-fashioned fun.

We welcome every woman’s input. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact us.



A Book and a Mug meets Wednesdays from 10:30-11:45 AM in the Church Parlor. 

All women are invited to join a five-week study to begin on April 24. We will read and discuss Daniel Henderson's book, Transforming Prayer, How Everything Changes When You Seek God's Face.

Mastering Motherhood is an amazing community of mamas that meets weekly, 12 weeks in the Fall and 14 weeks in the Spring. We provide free childcare, a scrumptious meal, gift giveaways, amazing speakers, engaging table talk discussions, and small book groups.

The book groups are comprised of different parenting and women related book studies, ranging from managing anger, marriage, toddlers or teens, discipline, technology, empty nesting, self improvement, and so many more for your choosing.

Registration is now OPEN for our fall semester!

Meeting In-Person in Prayer Room — Monday Mornings, 8:00 AM— Ongoing. 

For more information, please contact Diane Galloway at 860.529.1575 ext. 117.

The one prayer Christ calls us all to pray requires us to let go of our momentary agendas and take up his eternal one. It requires us to surrender our disoriented sense of need to his perfect sense of what is best. We wait with expectant hearts to see When Women Pray. 

All are welcome to join in this prayer time.


Are you interested in connecting with other women

and being involved in an outreach ministry?

Regardless of your level of experience as a knitter or crocheter, we would love for you to join us!

Over the years, members of our congregation and staff have distributed over 200 shawls in the greater Hartford area and beyond, providing comfort to those coping with health and grief hardships. In addition to prayer shawls, baby blankets are also made and distributed to celebrate the gift of a new life.

Beyond the sound of needles, the Prayer Shawl Ministry is a wonderful time of sharing and growing together with other women at First Church.

Prayer Shawl Ministry meets on the first Tuesday of each month from  6:30-7:30 PM in the Morgan House Cafe. We will not meet meet in January.
