WOMEN'S GROUPS

We all need a village, a group of friends, a circle of ladies who can help hold us up, encourage us, challenge us and teach us more about ourselves and Jesus. This was true last year, and it is true again today. As we navigate this season, we encourage you to find a group, wether in person or online. And as always ... please reach out to us if you need help, prayer, or simply some words of encouragement! You can reach us at womens@gracebibleag.com ...

Aware Evangelism As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to be His ambassadors—representatives of God who bring His message of reconciliation to people in need. Aware Evangelism will help you connect with others by being Available, Watchful, Attentive, Responding, and Encouraging. Aware evangelism is a journey of discovering—as individuals and with a group—how we can make an eternal impact in the lives of people around us by taking small, simple steps every day.

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts.  If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Hi – I’m Christie Eckert.  I used to sit in the church pews suffering in silence with guilt, shame, and grief from an abortion I had when I was 18 years old.  I struggled with forgiving myself and with accepting that God really had forgiven me. I prayed for an opportunity for God to use me for His glory and to give what I had been through a purpose.  I started volunteering at my local crisis pregnancy clinic. Before I could go through counselor training, I participated in a Bible study, “Forgiven and Set Free” by Linda Cochrane. The impact of this study was life changing.  I met other women who were suffering just like me. All our stories were different but we were able to empathize and support each other and grow in our walks with the Lord. Are you one of us? God does not want you suffering in silence.  He wants you to know His redeeming grace and to find lasting healing. This study walks us through issues such as relief, denial, anger, forgiveness, depression, letting go, and acceptance using God’s Word. If you have any questions or would like to talk more, please reach out to me (805)-701-9246 (text or call) or email me at christieeckert@aol.com .
