Tapestry Ministries Purpose Statement:


  • To assist every woman in the church to come to know Christ personally and be committed to extending His kingdom in her life, home, church, community, and throughout the world
  • To encourage and equip women to think biblically and covenantally (as opposed to thinking individualistically with regard to ourselves and our ministry)
  • To build community, compassion, discipleship, and submission to church leadership among the women of Ryker’s Ridge Baptist Church (This will be facilitated through conferences and retreats, prayer groups, Bible studies, fellowships/relationship building, mission projects, mentoring, and Titus 2 Groups.)
  • To exemplify woman’s helper design and life-giving mission (Gen. 1-3)
  • To impart a legacy of biblical womanhood to the next generation (mentoring and Titus 2 Groups)
  • To support the church’s biblical and doctrinal standards and its vision
  • To serve as a helper ministry to the other ministries and male leadership of the church (outreach ministry, missions, food service, hospital ministry, visitation)
