Women in the Church (WIC) meets weekly for prayer every Tuesday, and to encourage one another and grow in faith. Bible studies, mother-daughter teas, and other activities are geared to support women in all stages of life.
What is WIC?

All women are encouraged to become active participants in WIC. There are many ways that you can be involved, including:

WIC uses the symbol of an old-fashioned kerosene lamp with a wick. This symbol emphasizes the importance of spiritual life and growth to the women and encourages them to obey Christ’s command to shine as lights in a dark world. In order for the kerosene lamp to give light, it must be filled with oil. The wick must rest continually in the oil and must be trimmed regularly to burn effectively. The lamp chimney must be kept clean and clear. Similarly, the believer’s life must be filled with the oil of the Holy Spirit. As the wick rests in the oil and is fully saturated with it, so must the WIC rest in Christ and draw life and spiritual strength from His Holy Spirit. The knob on the side of the lamp represents the Word of God, by which the lives of believers must be regulated in obedience to His revealed will.
