Women’s Ministries

Women are called by God to help their husbands and submit to them (Eph 5:22-24), to care for their children (Titus 2:3-4), to oversee the home with joy and diligence (Proverbs 31), to minister in the church by teaching other women (Titus 2:3-4) and being active in service (1 Timothy 5:9-10). This high calling requires women to be passionately committed to God’s Word, to God’s church, to their families, and to honoring God in the work He has provided to enrich their homes.

To this end we seek to provide women with weekly encouragement in practical Christian living, with opportunities for in-depth Bible study, and with the oversight and implementation of multiple service ministries within the church.

Ministries

  1. Friday Morning Bible Study – Main Building – Upstairs Classroom
    (9-11 am) This study consists of a time for teaching, small group discussion, and prayer.  This semester the ladies are studying through the book “Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands” by Paul David Tripp.  Childcare is provided.
  2. Ladies Tuesday Evening Bible Study – This study will be meeting on a Tuesday once a month to study the book of Colossians.  The class will be held at Margaret Smith’s home and will meet from 7 – 9 pm.
  3. Bible Study for Moms – This year we are introducing a new monthly Bible study for moms.  Unlike many parenting books and studies, our goal will be to focus primarily on the mommy’s heart rather than on the child’s heart.  Deuteronomy 6 instructs parents to love God with all their hearts and then teach their children to do likewise.  This class will meet once a month on a Thursday evening in the Main Church Building – Upstairs Classroom from 6:30 – 8:30 pm and will be using the book: Mommy, Tend Your Heart by Yvonne Hanson.
    Childcare is provided.
  4. Practical Classes
    Throughout the year, classes on a variety of practical topics are held – these include time management, home cleaning and organization, nutrition, and many others.  Please contact the church for information on these classes.
  5. Service Ministries
    The women’s ministry team oversees a variety of service and ministry opportunities throughout the year such as church decoration, church organization, food preparation and organization for events, and many others.  Please contact the church for a list of opportunities and who to contact.
  6. Ladies Bible Institute
    The Ladies Bible Institute is a two year intensive study to equip women in the knowledge of Christ and His Word for the purpose of serving the local body.  The class meets on Monday evenings from
    6:30 – 9:00 pm.
