THE ORCHARD

A COMMUNITY OF WOMEN

An orchard is an intentional planting of crops that is intended to produce crops [fruit]. The same can be said about our lives as Christ-followers. The seed of the gospel has been intentionally planted in our hearts for the purpose of producing the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. An orchard grows in groups and bunches, trees and bushes planted closely together to encourage community growth. As believers, we are made for community as well. We grow best when we are encouraged and strengthened by others around us. This is why The Orchard exists – a community of ladies focused on helping one another produce the fruit of following Christ in her life.

PURPOSE

We exist to develop a community of women who grow individually and collectively in their walk with Christ, producing fruit that reaches the church, the community, and the world.

The Bible tells us her accusers caught her “in the act”, which is a very explicit explanation of her sin.

Am I Beautiful?

The old saying goes like this – beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As women, it is very important for us to focus on Who is beholding us. God’s heart is saddened as He watches the women He creates with love and extraordinary detail worry over what the world thinks they should be.
