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

Sacred Days: The Feasts of the LORD

Days & Times: Wednesday mornings – (Begin 9/5) 9:00 to 11:00 am and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm 
Authored and taught by Laurie Barnett. 

The Feasts of the LORD as listed in Leviticus 23 are “God’s holidays”, which paint a magnificent picture of God’s redemptive plan for mankind. Exploring the purpose and traditions of these sacred days will lead us to a deeper appreciation for our precious Savior and the Hebrew origins of our faith. Join us on this eight- week study offered Wednesday mornings and evenings at 6:30 p.m.

Gideon by Priscilla Shirer

Days & Times: (Begins 9/5) Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm 
Workbook cost: $13

In what ways do you feel insufficient? Those places create the greatest opportunity to experience the sufficiency of God. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, see them as the gifts that they are, given specifically and strategically by God to unlock the door of God’s strength.
