United Women in Faith

We believe LOVE in ACTION can CHANGE the world.

Faith Action Sisterhood

United Women in Faith seeks to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship, and education so that they can inspire, influence, and impact local and global communities.

We have FIVE Circles, and 2 Mission Circles at Franklin First and invite you to join us!

  1. To Know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ
  2. To develop a creative and supportive fellowship
  3. To expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
