The ARP Women’s Ministries is an organizationwhich encourages and equips the community of ARP women to minister together for God’s glory and purpose.

All women who are members of the Greenville ARP Church are members of Greenville Women’s Ministries. The purpose of our Women’s Ministries is to provide women opportunities for spiritual growth through Bible study and creative fellowship. Building on this foundation we seek to serve in the church and community with a Christ like love. See also the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Denomination Web Site for more information regarding Women’s Ministries within our denomination.
