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

Upcoming Events and Small Group Information:

  Bloom Women Fall Retreat 2018 is over. Check back for 2019 dates.


You are woven by the hand of God.

We believe that you are intricately woven together by the One who has created all things, and the story of your life is a gathering of many threads that are woven into God's epic story of love. You are a woman woven by the hand of God. "I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God." Col 2:2

Thanks to all those who attended!

PLans for the 2019 retreat will begin in a few months. check back for more information.

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 monthly or semi-monthly.  By clicking on the images, you will find more information on each group. 

bloom social groups :: places to connect with other women

Roots :: bloom bible studies

Our "roots" groups are small groups that have a focus on growing in your relationship with God and with others.   Most 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 "roots" small groups. 

The Fall 2018 studies are starting soon!

Check back soon for more detailed information. If you are interested in our previous studies, visit the page about past studies.

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 contact Gloria Dol or Kara Williams or email for more info.  


A meal ministry for those in the church family who need some extra help in times of need.  Whether its the birth of the first child or they are suffering from a loss we want to help.

If you or someone you know could use some extra love and encouragement (in the form of meal) please let us know.  

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