Why the name Pillars?

In examining this scripture, we have been struck by the significance of a corner pillar.  A corner pillar is historically both lovely and functional.  It is vital to the entire structure and is intended to bring glory to something greater than itself.  In addition, we are each vital in our homes, families, and church community. We desire that all the women of Portico grow in their relationship with the Lord and function with the grace and beauty of a corner pillar.  It is with this in mind our women’s ministry is called Pillars.

Because we seek to follow Christ and grow closer to Him, we look to John 1:14, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” We wish to be filled with His grace and truth as we fellowship and study the Word together.
