We believe that the best and most growth happens with others. Jesus recruited 12 to train, teach, and send out into the world. Together they shared meals and conversations. They lived life together and journeyed with one another.
And sometimes you just want to get together with other women!
Acts 2 tells us about the unity and growth that comes when the people of God gather in small groups. It is our hope to develop a strong community of Christ followers by offering you a place to connect with other women just like you!
No matter where you are in your walk with Christ, we have a study for you. Study topics include a wide range of women and family issues as well as topics of faith. Studies typically run 6-8 weeks. If you are interested in joining a group or starting a new one, contact Dianna Sheely in the church office.
Current Group Information
When we look around at today’s world, hope usually isn’t the first word that comes to mind. In many ways we live in an unstable world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message of hope—a message that intentional living is possible even in an unstable world. A 6 week study of the book Jeremiah by Melissa Spoelstra.
Mondays at 9:30am in the Armstrong Room. Led by Rene Beck.
Lisa Harper makes digging into Hebrews fun and doable, as only she can, without losing an ounce of depth. Hebrews was a sermon for a specific people and culture in the midst of martyrdom and persecution, but is also so relevant for us today, reminding us to continue walking toward Jesus regardless of our culture or our circumstances. Join Lisa as she journeys through this bridge between the Old and New Testaments to get to the heart of the matter: Jesus is our accessible King. He is not a faraway God, but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us. Hebrews helps women make the connection between God the Father and God the Son and reminds us that Jesus is supreme, but He is also compassionate, empathetic, and loving to no end. (7 sessions)
Tuesdays at 9:45am at the home of Julie Holland. Contact the office for location.
LOVE YOUR LIFE
By Victoria Osteen. “Loving your life is being willing to make changes, to let go of old ways and unhealthy habits so that you can be the best you can be. It’s about having the right perspective and understanding the value of who you are and what you have. It’s learning to love others and learning to love yourself so that you can get more out of your relationships. It’s about recognizing the gifts that God has given you and making the most of those gifts.”
With all of the pressures of the modern world, women have had to deal with an increasingly daunting array of issues—from their kids’ school and sports to their own health and finances and faith. Too often, they have to deal with these matters by themselves. The woman’s role is not an easy one, but it’s far from impossible. Women can find balance and joy and hope, and become better wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends in the process.
Wednesday at 7:00pm in the Armstrong Room. Led by Dianna Sheely
During Lent, the church will be focusing on the new study by Adam Hamilton, Creed: What Christians Believe and Why; Exploring the Apostles’ Creed. This study explores what Christians believe, why they believe it and why it matters. This understanding helps Christians confront and examine their own core beliefs and bring new minute to the familiar words of the Apostles’ Creed. Books will be available in the Atrium or online from Cokesbury.
Thursday morning at 9:30 am in the Armstrong Room, led by Ruth Powell
THE BEST YES
Do you find yourself spending a lot of time figuring out when to say yes and when to say no, thinking about how to manage your time, reduce stress, do your best for your families and still find a little time for yourself? The Best Yes is a 6-week study by Lysa Terkeurst where we learn usable, scripture-laced insight and strategies for making wise decisions day by day.
Thursdays at 6:00am in the Armstrong Room. Led by Jan Bell, Sue Porter, Amy Spicher and Pam Westrup.
Women’s Summer Bible Study Series
Uninvited by Lysa Terkeurst
Wednesdays – June 14 & 28, July 12, 19 & 26, August 2
6:30-7:45pm in the Armstrong Room
In this six-session video Bible study, author Lysa TerKeurst helps women explore the roots of rejection; the lies we believe as a result; and the truth about who God is, who we are, and what it looks like to live loved.
The enemy wants us to feel rejected…left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose, cripples our courage, dismantles our dreams, and blinds us to the beauty of Christ’s powerful love.
