The Board for Women’s Ministries
The purpose of the Board for Women’s Ministries is to provide the women of First-Plymouth Church opportunities to develop relationships with one another, and opportunities for spiritual growth and support; to educate about and to advocate for (when appropriate), the needs of women, children, and families; and to provide support and service to individuals and organizations which advance opportunities for women and/or serve women with needs. The Board also works with and supports, along with other Boards and communities, the ongoing projects and programs of First-Plymouth Church.
The Board for Women’s Ministries sponsors retreats throughout the year. Retreats are a good opportunity for the women of First-Plymouth Church and their friends to get together for spiritual enrichment, relax, and reconnection. Retreats typically take place in the fall and spring and vary from a one-day in-town retreat to an overnight out-of-town retreat.
Committees within the Board for Women’s Ministries plan events and financial support throughout the year to benefit programs geared towards serving women and children.
The Scholarship Committee will accept applications for scholarships from women seeking higher education in Nebraska every spring. Applications can be found here on our website.
You can also "Give the Gift of Education!"
If you are not seeking financial aid but are interesting in giving aid, please let us know! We are always accepting gifts into the Scholarship Fund. Please contact Laura Uridil, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions on giving. Your gift is tax deductible as a gift to First-Plymouth.
Advocacy and Education
Members of this committee work to inform the Board and the church of current legislative and/or legal issues effecting women, children, and families. The Board may then decide to take action such as writing letters, organizing publicity, etc.
Fellowship and Celebration of Women
These are opportunities throughout the year for women to get together in a relaxing, supportive, social environment. Events throughout the year include the Salad Supper, Soup Supper, and Notable Women.
