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.

How Our New Space Has Changed The Firstfruits Experience

Firstfruits has found a wonderful place to call HOME! Centrally located in the heart of Elm Grove, the space allows us to provide much more for women - and whatever else the Spirit has in store.

By moving into its own space, Firstfruits is able to provide more frequent, ongoing offerings in an accessible location that is not connected with a particular parish or church. This neutral setting may seem more comfortable to the unchurched or women who have strayed from the church. It enables Firstfruits to better complement church efforts to meet spiritual hunger.

And, in a secular setting, Firstfruits can boldly and creatively answer the call to evangelize in the world around us! We are Catholic Christian in tradition and ecumenical in outreach – all are welcome and encouraged to attend.

“I invite everyone to be bold and creative in this task of rethinking the goals , structures, style and methods of evangelization in their respective communities.”

Evangelii Gaudium- “ The Joy of the Gospel”

Pope Francis
