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

The Psalms of the Levitical Choir by Laurie Barnett
January 9 through March 27 - 8 week study
Cost: $3
Location: Room D068
Each day, when the Temple of the LORD stood in Jerusalem, the Levitical choir sang a specific psalm of praise designated for that particular day. Every psalm had deep significance and was replete with meaning. In this eight- week study we will journey through these sacred songs hearing the heart cries of God’s people and gaining insight into the majesty and the holiness of our God and King.

Wednesday AM from 9-11:00 a.m.

Gideon by Priscilla Shirer
January 9 through February 20 – 7 week study
Workbook cost $13
Location: Room D070
Recognize Your Weakness To Experience God's Strength In Your Life.  When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or a fleece spread beneath the evening sky. But Gideon's story is so much bigger than that. This is a story about God and His people—His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of, even through, their weakness.
This 7-session study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, learn to see them as the gifts given specifically and strategically by God. If you've ever felt insufficient, ill-equipped, incompetent, or outnumbered, this study is for you.

Tuesday PM from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Fingerprints of God by Jennifer Rothschild
January 8 through February 19 – 7 weeks
Workbook cost $12
Location: Room D070
The God who raised mountains and set the mighty waves in motion wants you to feel His tender touch. While not skin-on-skin or 98.6 degrees, God’s touch is always personal. Author, speaker and recording artist Jennifer Rothschild understands that God guides us on pathways we cannot navigate alone. God’s essential touch separates us from all other created beings. His touch warms, affirms, and guides us; it communicates value and self-esteem. Fingerprints of God: Recognizing God’s Touch on Your Life teaches us to recognize six things we can experience because of God’s touch: honor, intimacy, shelter, guidance, redemption, and refinement.

Wednesday PM from 6:30 - 7:45 p.m.

Rachel & Leah by Nicki Koziar
Beginning January 9
Workbook cost $13
Location: Room D070
Why her?
How many times have you asked yourself that question? How many times have you felt like you couldn’t measure up no matter how hard you tried? We’ve all been there.  Over 6 sessions, uncover truths you need to arm yourself with when combatting comparison by studying the biblical account of Rachel & Leah. Learn to be content without becoming complacent, and discover godly wisdom to quiet the incessant Why Her? question in your head. Develop greater awareness of your insecurities, and learn to stop the lies in their tracks. Because the truth will set you free, and free women don’t have to measure up to anyone. Not even her.
