Women of Oakland
Proverbs 31:29-30 Many women do noble things but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
The Women of Oakland (WOO) work together to aim all of their efforts toward ministering to the entire woman; Body, Spirit, and Soul. But that's not all! WOO is always planning something -- whether it be making baby blankets for new mothers, organizing craft fairs for local artisans, or looking for some creative, fun way to minister the word of God through teaching and preaching so every woman is able to see her worth in Christ Jesus.
