Woman of the Year 2020

She has been a member of First ARP for over 40 years. During that time she has been a faithful member of the choir, her Sunday school class, served on the diaconate and on the Congregational Care Committee.  She has organized inter-generational movie showings at the church along with flower arranging and tea parties.  In addition, she gives generously with her time, talents and resources in preparing meals for her church family.  She organized and ran the Tea Room several years during the Women’s Ministry Bazaars, has cooked Valentine’s Dinners, HARPs meals, assisted with church retreat meals as well as condolence and Wednesday evening meals.  She is always willing to cook for any occasion and is in the kitchen any time it is open. 

Proverbs 11:25 says; “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”

In honor of her generosity and faithfulness to First ARP we are honored to acknowledge as 2020 Woman of the Year , Erin McManus.

Woman of the Year 2021

Coming soon!

First ARP women join together in Christian fellowship so

that each woman may be encouraged to grow in her

knowledge of Christ and of the Holy Spirit's power and

may be equipped to serve in harmony with God's design

for herself, her home, this church, and the world community.
