Our Purpose: As women who share a common faith in our Lord, we unite to demonstrate His love in all areas of life and to grow in Christian faith and responsibility through study, prayer and service.

Who are we? As church members and friends, we support the ministry of The Peoples Church through giving to Christian Service projects, support and involvement with our four founding denominations, fund raising efforts, fellowship, friendship, hospitality and prayer. We offer programs and engage in conversation on a variety of topics related to our growth as followers of Jesus Christ.

The Women of Peoples Church (WPC) have been raising money to help meet critical needs in the Greater Lansing community for more than a century. Over the past 10 years, we have provided $38,000 to 22 nonprofit organizations.

All women of the church are welcome!
