Diane Galloway, Director of Caring Ministires | 860.529.1575 x117

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.


Meeting In-Person in Prayer Room — Wednesdays from 12-1 PM — 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.


A Book and A Mug

A Book and a Mug will meet Wednesdays, 10:30-11:45 AM beginning September 20th in the Church Parlor.

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 will resume on the first Tuesday of each month, beginning September 5th from  6:30-7:30 PM in the Morgan House Cafe.

For more information, contact Elaine St. Onge at 860-529-7821.

Women's Fall Retreat

October 28

9:00 AM-3:00 PM in Keith Jones Hall

Featuring Priscilla Shirer via Simulcast

"For we are powerless...

But our eyes are on You."

2 Chronicles 20:12

The day will include great food, fellowship, inspiring seminars, and a time of meaningful prayer and reflection.

Priscilla Shirer is the author of more than two dozen books. She and her husband lead Going Beyond Ministries through which they provide spiritual support and resources to the body of Christ. Priscilla's prayer for these sessions is that women will release their burdens and lean back into His presence. To open hearts to receive what He has for each one. And rest.
