Marble Surface
What is cultivate?

The purpose of Cultivate is to create a sense of belonging for women of our church and community where we can grow in our faith, prayer life and friendships through studying God's word, serving his people and shepherding one another along life's journey. In conjunction with United Women in Faith, Cultivate strives to provide multiple opportunities for women to gather and develop meaningful relationships as they draw even closer to Christ.

Through small group Bible and book studies, service projects and social gatherings, Cultivate hopes to create safe spaces to discuss and learn how to deal with the struggles of everyday life, the joys and heartaches that come with each stage of life and offer women the chance to encourage each other, be vulnerable with one another and develop more Christian friendships and support systems that are multi-generational. We hope you join us!
