A few words

About Us

Our Mission

To inspire everyone to reflect on God's word to slow down, simplify, sanctify and give back to the community.

What We Do

Reflections for Women is a local nondenominational 501(c)(3) ministry sustained only by donations. Reflections provides events, free of charge, to the public. We invite Craig F. Harrison as the speaker, and he speaks from the heart and inspires the audience with scripture to slow down, simplify and sanctify their lives. Reflections is also committed to giving back to the community through Scholarships, City Serve, St Vincent De Paul, and Christmas love baskets!

OUR STORY

In April 2021 it was realized that there was a thirst to understand how scripture impresses and applies to everyday life. With that knowledge, a group gathered to discuss the potential for a series of spiritual, Christian-based presentations to be provided at no cost to attendees. With these goals in mind, the group reached out to local women via social media and email. Given the overwhelmingly positive response to the first presentation by Craig F. Harrison, the group decided to move forward with monthly gatherings, and “Reflections for Women” was born. To maintain the event at no cost to attendees the Reflections nonprofit relies solely on committee volunteers and the generous donation of local companies and community members. The presentations have now evolved into “Reflections for All” as all are welcome with both ladies and gentlemen in attendance.

We look forward to continuing presentations and outreach support to our local community. Thank you for your generosity and support. We could not do this without YOU!

In early 2022 our additional goal of giving back to the community was realized. Reflections has been able to support several local families in need, purchase commercial equipment and socks for St Vincent De Paul, a local homeless shelter, and provide funding to CityServe, an organization that provides food and services to the community.

Reflections donated $5,000 to the SPCA in 2024.
