Women's Ministry

Everything about the Women's Ministry is planned with the unique needs of women in mind. Through Bible Studies, mom's groups, retreats and special events, we provide opportunities for women in all circumstances to become fully developing followers of Christ while building lasting relationships with women just like you.

Many weekly Bible studies are always underway, led by lay-women with a passion for serving the women of this church. See class information below.

Our Vision

  • Equip you in God's Word and grow you in a relationship with the Lord.
  • Enable you to discover your God-given gifts for ministry, determine needs in our church and community, and match those needs with your gifts of service.
  • Encourage you to build friendships within the body of Christ.
  • Edify and pray for each other.

Our Bible Verse

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near." Hebrews 10:23-25

2023 Fall bible study classes

Please note start dates and times.

Wednesday mornings at 9:00 a.m. and evenings at 6:30 p.m. beginning Aug. 30:

Isaiah - Striving Less and Trusting God More by Melissa Spoelstra
Led by Nicole Lino
Following God isn’t about striving; it’s about trusting. As you study the chapters Isaiah wrote—from his challenging words to the nation of Israel to his prophecies of the Messiah to come—learn to rest in God's promises and grow in trust. In this 7-session study, Isaiah’s words will reveal that you can trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. In Him you'll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you. Workbook cost: $22. Meets in Rooms A101-A102.

Wednesday mornings at 9:00 a.m. and evenings at 6:30 p.m. beginning Sept. 6:

Jacob’s Sons written and led by Laurie Barnett
Join us in this 10-session study of the twelve tribes of Israel. We will explore the prophecies given to Jacob’s sons, their successes and failures, and their importance throughout the pages of God’s Word. Worksheet cost: $5pp. Meets in room A107.

Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. beginning Sept. 11:

From Beginning to Forever by Elizabeth Woodson
Led by Dian Wade
Many Christians today are daunted by the Bible, seeing the size and scope of Scripture as intimidating and overwhelming. The result is often a fragmented understanding of parts of the Bible, which leads us to view it through the lens of our individual stories, primarily looking for different verses or passages to help us live our everyday lives. But, in our search for personal truth, we fail to see how the entirety of Scripture works together to show a bigger story—God's work to redeem and restore the entire world. In From Beginning to Forever, Elizabeth Woodson guides you through the story of the Bible, showing how all 66 books combine to form one unified narrative. Weaving together the rich theological truths found in Genesis through Revelation, this 8-session study shows the eternal significance of what God is doing in the world and how he invites us to be a part of it. Workbook cost: $22. Meets in room D070.
