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

2019 Bible Study Groups

 All women in the community are welcome to join any or several groups!

Finding I Am by Lysa TerKeurst

Wednesdays at 6:30p : February 27 through May 15
Workbook Cost: $15
What is the deep cry of your heart? That ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.

Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study, you will learn to:

  • Trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment from knowing who Jesus is.
  • Stop living like a slave to your circumstances by training your heart to embrace the life-giving freedom God wants for you. 
  • Gain a better understanding of how Jesus' words 2,000 years ago are so very applicable to the answers we are searching for today.
