bloom :: women

At bloom, we desire to be authentic, real women that are compelled by God's love, to make a difference in the ordinary places of our lives - our homes, our workplaces, our communities, our friendships and our families. We are women that love to connect with one another and with God.   You are always welcome at "bloom" and we would love to get to know you.  On this page, you will find the various ways to connect with other women at FCC.  There are small groups where you can drop in anytime and bible studies where you can sign up for a regular study.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

For information on women's ministries, you can contact Sharon Baerg, our Worship and Women's Pastor at or you can email our women's ministry team at

  Save the date for our fall retreat! September 27-29, 2019

Our God is an unwavering God. He asks us for whole hearted surrender.

God calls us to a whole-hearted surrender, an all-in, follow-Him-anywhere kind of commitment, an unwavering hope. But we can only be surrendered because He is an unwavering, steadfast God. And the hope we have in His unwavering steadfastness is like an anchor in the waves. “Let us hold fast the confession of hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful” Heb 10:23 “We have this hope as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul” Heb 6:19

bloom faith-focused groups :: connect with God + others

These groups have a faith focus and provide a space for women to talk about faith, God, and how He impacts life.  Most of these groups are open to all women and meet either weekly, monthly or semi-monthly.  By clicking on the images, you will find more information on each group.  Some of the groups run for a 6-10 week session with a specific book or study.  Groups often take a short break and then gather again for another study.  We encourage women to sign up for one or more small groups.

Bridal and Baby Showers

Are you or someone you know in the church getting married or having a baby?

A church shower is much more than just gifts and games.  It’s a time for all ladies in the church to connect, learn more about the bride or new mom, provide encouragement and support as these brides and new moms begin an exciting new chapter in their lives.  It is our hope that each new mom or bride will feel a stronger connection to the ladies at Friendship Community church (FCC) because of these events.

Please email for more information

If you would like to help out making a meal, please sign up here and we will contact you with information.
