Women's Ministry

Our hope is to be a place where all women can belong. Our joy is to share our lives and faith in Jesus with you.

Women's Bible Studies

The Women’s Drop-In Bible Study will continue to meet at Grant Park (enter on Nancy Street far northeast part of the park) for the month of September on Thursdays from 10:00-11:30 am. We will learn from A Woman After God’s Heart. Please bring a chair and wear a mask.  We will social distance while praying, praising, and studying God’s Word.  All are welcome!

Beginning  October 1st, The Women’s Drop-In Bible Study will meet on Thursdays from 10:00-11:30 am in the  Fellowship Hall. This is pending any outbreaks from the school or congregation. We will use Max Lucado’s Unshakable Hope, a video series we began last winter. We  will start with a quick review and continue for 6 sessions. Tables will be set up for social distancing, we will wear masks, and have hand sanitizer available. We are resilient, responsible women and can make this work with love for each other and a heart open to the Word. Come as your schedule permits to any or all classes.
