First ARP women join together in Christian fellowship so

that each woman may be encouraged to grow in her

knowledge of Christ and of the Holy Spirit's power and

may be equipped to serve in harmony with God's design

for herself, her home, this church, and the world community.    

woman of the year 2016

This year’s woman of the year is a great Christian role model. She is described as an encourager, listener, advisor, learner, participator, empathizer, administrator, and a reminder that the status quo can often be improved. She visits shut-ins with homemade goodies and makes calls to those who need attention. She helps select speakers for WM events. She is an active member of the Spiritual Life Sunday school class and often arranges fellowship events for the class. She is an active member and facilitator in Circle 2. She is a family promise participator, member of revitalization prayer group and has held church gatherings in her home for teas, Sunday school fellowships, and small group Bible studies. She has served the church as a deacon and member of CE and Congregational Care committees. She has been a part of community outreach programs for school children. She has been a member and co-organizer of a monthly, small group Bible study for 10 years. She is kind to everyone she meets, an example of loving one’s neighbor.

The woman of the year is truly a woman of high calling! Women’s Ministries' 2016 woman of the year is JAN PHILLIPS.
