WELCOME TO WOMEN'S MINISTRY!
We are glad you stopped by here! Our women's ministry is designed with you in mind! We want to encourage you, help you find the support you need, and help you grow in your relationship with Jesus and other women! See below for our current groups. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
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. And as always ... please reach out to us if you need help, prayer, or simply some words of encouragement! You can reach us at email@example.com

Armor of God
Author: Priscilla Shirer
Leader: Jonette Graber
Homework Time: 20 minutes of homework 4 days per week | 8 weeks
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you. Join Priscilla Shirer in a 7-session Bible study and DVD series that will challenge you to suit up, stand firm, and secure victory in your life. The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer's inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

In Get Out of Your Head, Jennie Allen inspires and equips us to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts. Our enemy is determined to get in our heads to make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and incapable of making a difference for the kingdom of God. But when we submit our minds to Christ, the promises of goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways. It starts in your head. And from there, the possibilities are endless.

Precept Upon Precept: Daniel Part 1
Living Out a Biblical Worldview
Author: Precept with Kay Arthur and Wayne Barber
Leader: Renee Dobyns
Homework Time: 1 hour daily, 5 days per week
Part 1 contains 8 lessons and will be completed in 10 weeks
Why study the book of Daniel? It has been said that, what Revelation is to the New Testament, Daniel is to the Old. Daniel is God’s pattern for the future. As we progress through the study of Daniel, you will gain a greater understanding of your God and your future. 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, and 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.
This is a Precept study, and if you are familiar with Precept, we are taught to observe Scriptures, interpret, and then apply what we have learned to our lives. The tools you learn to use in a Precept class are invaluable to your study of the Word. This study of Daniel is divided into two parts; Part 1 includes chapters 1-6 and will be studied in 8 lessons over 10 weeks. Part 2 includes chapters 7-12 and will be studied in 10 lessons over 12 weeks. Part 2 will begin in January, 2024. Lessons are divided into five days of study and are approximately 1 hour of study per day.
This study is now open and new individuals may join in at any time. Part 1 is not a prerequisite for Part 2.
Class start September 12th at 6:30pm in room S5/6. Please click the image below to learn more and register.
With Us in the Wilderness
Author: Lauren Chandler
Leader: Betsy Newell
Homework Time: 1.5 hours per week | 8 weeks
In With Us in the Wilderness video Bible study, Lauren Chandler leads you through the book of Numbers, examining the Israelite’s journey through the wilderness to the promised land. This seven-session study will encourage you to trust God through your lonely wilderness season, exploring the Old Testament stories to give you a deeper understanding of His redeeming love.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org .
