“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]

THE POWER OF KNOWING GOD: A 6-WEEK, NO-HOMEWORK BIBLE STUDY
What is a Kay Arthur Precept no-homework study?
These revolutionary, no-homework, 6-week studies are an easy introduction to inductive study. Learn to think biblically and discover what God has to say about your real-life questions. Softcover workbooks include Scripture alongside instructions, questions and informative insights to aid your inductive study experience. Together the group will work through each week’s topic
THE POWER OF KNOWING GOD
You may know about God, but do you truly know what He says about Himself—and what He wants from you?
This eye-opening study will help you gain a true understanding of God’s character and His ways. As you discover for yourself who He is, you’ll be drawn into a deeper, more personal relationship with the God of the universe—a relationship that will enable you to confidently display His strength in life’s most challenging circumstances.
Through the truths uncovered in this study you will get to know God as never before. In doing so, your strength and faith will increase. You’ll be able to stand in confidence having seen for yourself who your God is, what He wants and how we can live in relationship with Him.
Knowing God enables us, as believers, to display strength in times of stress and take action when the rest of the world seems to be immobile.

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.
