Washington Metro Area Churches

 

We here at FWTG Ministries, Inc. realize that some women who don't have a church home, hesitate to visit a church in their community because it is a little scary going into new surroundings with new people. We understand where you're coming from.

 

Therefore, it will be a joy for us to introduce you to some great women who are members of these churches to eliminate some of those fears.

 

If you and members of your family do not have a church home, we pray to GOD that the Holy Spirit will lead you to one of these churches or to a local church in your community.
