Exalt, Encourage, Engage

God’s word says to encourage one another in love and good deeds, not abandoning our own meeting together, as is the habit of some people, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

- Hebrews 10:25

Multi-generational opportunities and outlets for women include:

Bible Studies

Biblical & practical application of God’s Word. These studies are designed to engage women who are new to the Word as well as those who desire in-depth study.

Elijah, by Priscilla Shirer

  • Meeting in the Youth Building
  • Tuesdays 9:45 – 11:15 am, begins August 24 – October 19
  • An 8-session study
  • Led by Diane Wilson
  • Childcare is available by registration

Old Testament heroes are best known for their most celebrated moments: Moses dividing the Red Sea; David slaying Goliath; Gideon routing an insurmountable army; Joshua marching around the defiant walls of Jericho.
And Elijah–calling down fire on Mount Carmel.
Blinded by the remarkable narratives of our biblical heroes, we can forget they each had a backstory–months and years of development, even difficulty, which fortified their spiritual muscle and prepared them for the tasks that made their lies unforgettable.
Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.
Join Priscilla Shirer on this journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

You are about to study one of the most amazing, challenging, encouraging books of the Old Testament. If you want your faith strengthened, if you want insight into the future, if you want to be lost in the wonder and awe of your God, if you want to know how to live in a society opposed to all you believe, then you have chosen a wonderful study: the book of Daniel.

Jesus & Women in the First Century and Now, by Kristi McLelland

  • Meeting in E101
  • Wednesdays 6:30-8:15 pm, begins Aug 25-Oct 20*
  • 7 sessions
  • Led by Lisa Layton

Imagine walking the dusty roads of Galilee with Jesus of Nazareth–braving jostling crowds just to touch the edge of His cloak and hear Him say, “Take heart, daughter, your faith has healed you.”
Those words, once meant to comfort a hurting women’s soul thousands of years ago, were also meant for you.
Join biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland on those dusty roads as she transports you back to Jesus’ world, following in the footsteps of the women who came face-to-face with the Living God. Examine the historical and cultural climate of first-century Middle Eastern society to not only understand Jesus more deeply but to fuel your worship of Him today.

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.
