Firstfruits began with an idea: How could women’s needs to gather with other women, experience God’s love and go forth more centered on their own giftedness and purpose be met? Then the Holy Spirit stepped in and something powerful happened!
In the beginning … Firstfruits began as a vision for a women’s ministry whose purpose was to gather women to experience God’s love. And as a result, be transformed!

As word spread about this unique opportunity, other parishes became interested in hosting a Firstfruits gathering. It became apparent to the founders of Firstfruits that this “gathering” needed to be moveable. We became known as a moveable feast of spiritual opportunities for women.

What to expect at Firstfruits Homebase

There is no place like home.


Firstfruits’ “homebase” – centrally located in the heart of Elm Grove – will offer the same contemporary, yet cozy, ambiance that has made our day retreats a place of rest from the busyness of the world. Come refresh your spirit, and reconnect with God among a community of women who share your longing!

Feel free to drop in to connect with your Firstfruits community when you are out and about, in addition to attending scheduled events. There will always be someone here with a smile and hot coffee!

Our home base will include a quiet room devoted to prayer and meditation, as well as spaces for other events and informal gatherings.
