“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 study. Please be sure to RSVP for childcare within your online registration. TUESDAYS 9:45-11:45am and/or WEDNESDAYS 6:30pm-8:00pm [REGISTER FOR BIBLE STUDY WITH INDIVIDUAL LINKS BELOW]
Women’s 2020 Summer Precept Bible Study at GCC

Sermon on the Mount – Precepts for Life Free Download Study Guide
a study guide to the radio / tv broadcast series by Kay Arthur. Early in His ministry Jesus passed through the region of Galilee teaching in synagogues, preaching “the gospel of the kingdom,” and healing every kind of sickness. As news of these miracles spread rapidly to several other regions, people brought their desperately sick relatives and friends to Him. When He healed all of them, a huge crowd began to follow Him.
At a strategic point, He headed up a mountain overlooking the Sea of Galilee to teach them what has become known as the “Sermon on the Mount.”
Now what exactly did He say that was so important to such a vast audience and to us today?
You’ll discover what in these ten programs:
· Who the religious authorities in His day were
· Why you should choose Jesus to be your authority
· How “sons of God” live in our age of darkness—what they value, how they think, and what they do.
· What God has planned for His sons both in this life and in the next
Throughout this Sermon Jesus presses the point that His Father is creating a kingdom of sons of light to invade, lighten, and conquer darkness for all eternity.
Join us in this exciting study to learn all it means to be a son of God, to be all in for God “so that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.”
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.
