Church Groups and Gatherings
W.O.W. (Women Offering Worship) WOW's purpose is to glorify God and to help us as women to grow closer to Him. As we learn what God
has done and is doing in our world, it enables us to grow in faith and trust more and more. Recognizing that
life is hard and we all have struggles, WOW is a "place of grace" and we pray for each other, support each
other, help each other, and serve each other. Our focus of study has been God's view of the world vs. the
secular view and other religious views. We have sought to understand how to reach out to those with views
differing from ours and to be winsome Christian women. We have collected items for the backpack ministry,
helped fund a program for at risk children in High Point, served meals to the women's shelter in Lexington,
collected personal care items for the homeless shelters, and collected school supplies and small toys for the
children in the Dominican Republic since we have direct contact there from the Youth Mission Trip. We are always welcoming women to become a part of our community of Christian women.
