For Zion’s sake I will not rest and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be silent, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.
The purpose of the Women In the Church is that every woman know Christ personally and be committed to extending His Kingdom in her life, home, church, community, and throughout the world.
The framework of the Women In the Church organization provides an opportunity for each woman to discern and exercise her gifts and abilties to the glory of God in the total work and worship of the church.
The goal is that this purpose will be come a reality as women are given opportunities to respond to the Gospel and to pray, study the Scriptures, fellowship and serve the Lord together.
The Women In the Church organization recognizes that all ministries and activities of the church are under the authority and guidance of the session.
The initials, WIC, suggest the symbol of an old-fashioned kerosene lamp with a wick. This symbol emphasizes the importance of spiritual life and growth to women and encourages them to obey Christ’s command to shine as lights in a dark world. The theme verse of the WIC is Isaiah 62:1, “For Zion’s sake I will not rest and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep silent, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.”
