Women are essential and so highly valued in the Lord's church! Jesus rejected the cultural notion that women were unimportant and taught the radical idea that everyone had value in The Kingdom (Galatians 3:28). Each and every person is part of God's plan for the fitting and joining together of The Body (Ephesians 4:16). Women at Laurel are the life force that keep every program running smoothly. At Laurel, there are many ways, big and small, for a woman of any age to have a role in spreading God's word, reaching those in need, caring for the flock, and thereby growing spiritually! Please join us!
