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.

Help Firstfruits Grow

You can be part of this exciting new evangelization effort!

We Now Have a Home!

Through God’s grace and provision, Firstfruits opened a new, permanent home on October 10, 2017 in 2300 sq.ft of space at 890 Elm Grove Rd. in the Village Court in Elm Grove, Wisconsin.

In The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis says…

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.

That is just what Firstfruits hopes to do in our new home.

We invite you to be part of this new evangelization effort. We are counting on you to spread the word and to keep Firstfruits in your prayers.

We also ask that you prayerfully consider supporting Firstfruits through a financial gift or a donation of items on our Wish List.

Your donation will help with the cost of remodeling the space in addition to securing that we have the two years of monthly rent checks in the bank. Thanks to the generosity of our friends, we already have ten months secured.

Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated. Please see our Wish List below for items we need.

We are so excited to share this news with you and look forward to sharing this new space with you, too. Praise God for His faithfulness, provision and love!
