Women's Ministry

This is our prayer: that our love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that we may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11(We are) confident of this, that He who began a good work in us will carry it on until the day of Christ Jesus.  Philippians 1:6

  • If we have any encouragement from being united with Christ, any comfort from His love, any fellowship with the Spirit, any tenderness and compassion, then (let us) be like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Let us do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility (let us) consider others better than ourselves. Each of us should look out not only to our own interests, but also to the interests of others. Let our attitude be the same as Christ Jesus.  Philippians 2:1-5
  • The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ is with our spirit.  Philippians 4:23
  • Wednesday Evening Life Groups 6:30-8:00pm

    "Joy" by Lisa Harper | Susie Taylor | January 9- February 20 | 6:30pm-8:15pm | B202

    Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus. In this 7-session e-book study, discover the redemptive facet of Job’s suffering. Learn to view pain as a way to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and trust in the Lord. Because His providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you. Join us Wednesday evenings at 6:30PM beginning January 9th.

     

    "Discerning the Voice of God" by Priscilla Shirer | Susie Taylor | March 6 - April 17 | 6:30pm-8:15pm | B202

    Do you feel that the ability to hear God's voice is for other people and not for you? Is it only for people who lived in Biblical times? Not at all! The God who loved you enough to die for you loves you enough to talk to you. And wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand. One of Priscilla’s bestselling titles, Discerning the Voice of God is now completely revised with updated content and reflection questions. Each section contains insights that will aid you in your desire to hear Him speak. Discover the treasure of recognizing how God keeps in touch with his beloved people. Join us for this video driven Bible study Wednesday evenings at 6:30PM beginning March 6th.

    Resolving Everyday Conflict by Ken Sande & Kevin Johnson | JoAnn Polk and Della Bassman | Disciple Care Ministry | March 19th - May 7th | 9:30am-11:30am | B204

    Our God calls us to a ministry of reconciliation, peace, and unity. If you are a human, you cannot escape conflict- it’s everywhere!

When we handle our conflicts in a godly way, our relationships are strengthened, unity abounds, and we demonstrate Christ’s reconciling.
