ATP31 Women’s Ministry is a ministry of HWWC for women, by women, and to women. Proverbs 31:30 states “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised”. ATP31 Women’s ministry is aspiring to do just what this scripture says and what the previous passage of Proverbs 31 embodies.

P31, if you haven’t guessed it stands for Proverbs 31, which contains the qualifications for a virtuous woman.
Our goal as ATP31 Women is to pattern our lives after the word of God by fulfilling our God-given role and calling as women. This ministry is open to any woman of HWWC, 18 years and older or her friends who would like to go on this journey with us. We are seeking to minister to women the hope of God’s Word and that it is the only rule for our lives. We do this through equipping women for their role in this world with times of spiritual and practical training according to Titus 2:3. As a ministry, we are also here to provide help, in that we are empowering women to live victorious and productive lives through our service to other women, children, and the body of Christ. (1 John 5:4-6). Lastly, we are providing healing with times of refreshment and fellowship with other sisters in Christ through special services, events, and retreats. (2 Corinthians 8:4). Our focus for this year has been in line with Reaching Further up and Farther Out. We have been doing this in a variety of different ways including encouragement of others (Caring Cards) and in our times of ministry through our focus on the Word and reaching up to God for our help and strength. ATP31 has some other events planned throughout the year that you do not want to miss.
