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, Traditions Tea, An Old-Fashioned Christmas, and others!
Bible Study Opportunites
Mornings 9:15-11:30 am OR Evenings 7-8:30 pm
Spring Session Began January 15
Childcare is available for the morning session by availability. Please contact Jo Coltrain about childcare openings.
Psalms Volume 1, Songs Along the Way
Author Kathleen Nielson invites us “to grapple with the text” and see how the Psalms clearly show us the ways of God, the ways of words, and the ways of prayer. Kathleen provides helpful contexts and comments along with stimulating study questions. This study has been described as good food for the soul—challenging, convicting, and very, very encouraging.
The morning session will spend time in a large group for singing and teaching as well as small groups for discussion, prayer, and connecting with one another. The evening session is small-group-based and meets in a home. Register online or between services at the Women’s Ministry Table January 6 and 13. Those who attended this fall do not need to register. Cost is $8.
