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.

The Vision of our Ministry is to:

  • 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

Twelve Women of the Bible Workbook Cost:  $8

In this twelve-session video Bible study, some of today’s best-loved authors look at the spiritual lessons learned from twelve women in the Bible and what they mean for you today. You will look at these women’s successes and failures, see how they drew near to God in the midst of trials, and learn how they overcame rejection and disappointment. Their stories will inspire you to persevere through difficult times and find joy in the hope that Jesus has provided.
