Woman of the Year 2019

Nora Madsen is First ARP's Woman of the Year.  The Bible tells us in Hebrews 13:7, "Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you.  Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith."  

Nora is truly a woman of God and you can see that in her faith and all she does for our church and others.

She is involved in many different areas at First ARP.  She has served on the Diaconate, helps in the kitchen, involved with Family Promise, assists in organizing the church-wide retreat in Bonclarken, she's on the Family Life Committee, and is also a Sunday School teacher.  

Nora is not only an avid church goer, but a wife and a mother of three grown children.   She loves spending time with them, whether at church, home, on vacation, or at Bonclarken.  

What a great example of a woman of faith she is to all of us.  

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.
