“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue…Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”–Proverbs 31:25-26, 30
Women. We are fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. We are ingeniously designed with a special purpose. And although not limited to, we are nurturers, organizers, keepers of culture, and even architects of society through our families. God has made us equal with men, but gifted us uniquely for His eternal plan. Learning to balance Biblical womanhood in a modern world can feel like a daunting task. Because of this, GCC Women’s Ministry wants to provide multi-generational opportunities and outlets for women to fellowship, worship, study, pray, and do life together with Jesus as their focus. Here are some ways we can encourage women to get involved at GCC:
- Women’s Bible Studies (see below)
- Love in Action (see below)
- Events + Gatherings
- Volunteering + Investing in younger generations
[NOTE]: We are always hosting and promoting various women’s events and gatherings. Keep an eye open for announcements or take a peek at our online GCC calendar of events.
GCC Women’s Ministry desires to not only connect women with one another, but to also make sure we have a firm foundation in His Word. We offer various studies throughout the year. It is our hope that you are able to find one that fits your spiritual needs and schedule. Classes are held Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Childcare (newborn to Pre-K) is available for anyone attending a Tuesday morning study. Please be sure to RSVP for childcare within your online registration. TUESDAYS 9:45-11:45am **Childcare Provided** WEDNESDAYS 6:30pm-8:00pm [REGISTER FOR BIBLE STUDY WITH INDIVIDUAL LINKS BELOW]

“Discovering What the Future Holds” Kay Arthur & Georg Huber
Why wonder or worry about the future? God has given you a sneak preview.
Join us for a summer 6 week women’s Bible study beginning Tuesday, June 11th, 9:45-11:30am. (Meets June 11th, June 25th, July 2nd, July 9th, July 16th, and July 23rd. Will not meet June 18th) Meeting in D101. Childcare (nursery to preschool) is available upon reservation.
With all that’s transpiring in the world, people can’t help but wonder what the future holds. Will there ever be peace on earth? How long will the world live under the threat of terrorism? Is a one-world ruler on the horizon?
God has already provided answers to these questions in the book of Daniel, which sets forth His blueprints for the future. In fact, when you understand the prophesies Daniel reveals, every other prophecy in the Bible will fit somewhere in the plan.
“If you want to understand the future, if you want to know what will happen in the “end of days”, you need to begin with the prophecies of the Book of Daniel. Join me on this glorious adventure into the future.” – Kay Arthur
*What is a no-homework study? It’s an easy introduction to inductive Bible study. Learn to think biblically and discover what God has to say about your real-life questions. The softcover workbooks include Scripture alongside instructions, questions, and informative insights to aid your inductive study.
LOVE in ACTION – “You should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”–1 Peter 4:10
Love in Action is an extension of Women’s Ministry and was lovingly birthed to fill the needs of our church family when in life-stage transitions and recovering from illness. It is essentially a meals/transportation ministry for those in need. Whether your family has just had a baby, is healing from medical treatment, or in need of transportation for things such as medical appointments, it is the desire of Love in Action’s volunteers to serve you and shower you with love.
