Women's Ministries

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, and others! 

Bible Study Opportunites

Tuesday Connection
Begins September 22 | Cost is $10
Registration is closed, but you can contact Jo Coltain about joining.

Proverbs: The Ways of Wisdom
More than ever, we need wisdom and what better place to find it than in the book of Proverbs. Join us as we discover through Kathleen Nielson’s Bible study how these divinely inspired observations instruct us how to live rightly as the people of God, seeking to gain wisdom in every corner of our lives—the marketplace, our church, our homes, in our relationships, etc. This book of wisdom will also call us to look for ever-increasing satisfaction, discernment, and delight in God’s Word. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” (Prov. 9:10)

We will be branching out from Tuesdays this fall and offering the following options for Tuesday Connection. Please read through the information below and select the group that best fits your needs for this semester.

  • Tuesday Morning at Church, 9:15-11:30
    We will meet for large-group teaching time as well as time in a small group, following the same mitigations that we observe on Sunday mornings, i.e. masks and social distancing. 
  • Daytime Small Group in a Home
    Small group of 6-7 ladies. Day and time of meeting and decisions about masks and social distancing will be left up to the members of the group. Upon registering you will be asked for your preferences—day, time, and comfortability with mitigations—and then placed in a group based on preferences. 
  • Evening Group in a Home, 7-8:30 Tuesday or Thursday
    Small groups of 6-7 ladies. Decisions about masks and social distancing will be left up to the members of the group.
