Whether it's gathering together around the Word, serving others together, or just connecting over your latest project there are many opportunities for women to meet and encourage one another in growing as disciples of Jesus Christ.
We also have a number of special women's events throughout the year---watch the upcoming events page for details on events like the Gala in the Garden, Ladies Ministries Stop & See, Traditions Tea, An Old-Fashioned Christmas, and others!
Bible Study Opportunites
Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Christian Community
Join us as we look at this classic work by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, which is his inspiring account of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years in Germany. It reads like one of Paul’s letters, giving practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups. The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service are covered in this short book which perfectly fits with our summer schedule. Our study will include a large group time along with “table-talk” discussion and prayer. Cost for the book is $12.
Loving Your Child
This class is for anyone who loves children—moms, grandmas, teachers, etc.! Join us as we seek to cover two important goals in loving children: 1) Learning to express love in ways so that a child “feels” loved and 2) Making memories of love to help fill a child’s emotional tank. Discussion topics will include: temperaments, communicating feelings, focused attention, emotional sensitivity, eye contact, physical contact, discipline, and more! Experienced mother and grandmother, Kathy Gray, who has a love and passion for children will facilitate this class. Cost is $5.
