Pillars Women's Ministry

Pillars in the (Splash) Park

Make your Friday mornings special with a trip to a local splash park with other Portico moms and ladies! While parks can be a little more busy than a home, we hope this will still create a regular space where women can come meet, connect and be loved during the month of June. 

We will be hanging out 10:30 am - 12 pm. Please come for as long or short as you are able! You may want to bring a picnic blanket and/or towels, and pack a picnic lunch or snacks. Please text the "host" or Ashley Wooten (434.806.9803) with any questions or if you are trying to find the group!

Women's Coffees

All women are invited to come by our weekly coffees hosted in homes of various Portico members. This time is meant as a way for women to connect, fellowship and find community during the week. Young children are welcome and encouraged to join, but you do not need to bring children to attend! The coffees are all 10 am - 12 pm and you are welcome to come and go at any point during that time. The schedule will be posted here on the website, but addresses will be on The City or via the Facebook invites. Please email    with any questions or call the host with any questions!

We will be taking a break from our women's coffees for the summer but look forward to resuming these in August or September!

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.
