When you picture the word ARISE, you probably think of the sun coming up in the morning, casting it’s spreading light over everything, as it coaxes the darkness to fade and eventually flee. As we, the women of AFC, arise in our intimacy with Jesus, the light that shines through us connects us to other women, who need the warmth and peace that only He can bring. Our desire is to create an environment that allows women to grow in their faith, but also in their relationships with each other. We are a community of women of all ages, reaching out to be in friendship with others.
Isaiah 60:1 – “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.”
