Women's Ministry

Women's Ministry is a place where we grow together, build relationships with each other, and serve alongside one another. We seek to lead women into a personal and passionate relationship with Jesus Christ, embracing the truth that we are in deep need of His saving grace.

This grace removes our pretense and frees us to be honest and real with ourselves and others as we find our worth and our identity in God. His life-giving grace takes hold of our hearts, transforming our lives in our friendships, marriages, church, community, and the world.

Take Courage:  A Study of Haggai By: Jennifer Rothschild

Do you ever feel like the happy ending of your story is a million miles away?

Then you know how the Jewish people felt when they returned to their wrecked land after exile and began rebuilding the temple. They were distracted, discouraged, and ready to throw in the towel. But the prophet Haggai reminded them they could find courage in the God who had never left them.

Sometimes the landscapes of our lives feel wrecked, with our hope and purpose in shambles. We too get distracted and discouraged. However, God’s presence and promises give us courage to press on and trust Him with our story.

In this 7-session study on the Book of Haggai, learn to walk confidently in your calling, stay motivated despite opposition, and courageously invest your life in God’s purposes, trusting Him for results you may never see in this lifetime.

Join us in the adult Building upstairs Room 201 beginning October 21st .  Book Cost is: $14 Questions? Contact Natalie Gass

MOPS: 

MOPS is currently working on a schedule for the upcoming fall. Thank you for being flexible during our new normal. Being a mom is a challenging and sometimes lonely job. If you are a mother of a preschooler (pregnancy through kindergarten) and long for some "grown-up" time, then ALEDO MOPS welcomes you to join us!  MOPS is a non-denominational, Christian organization dedicated to meeting the needs of mothers of young children. The women in MOPS come from different backgrounds, yet have similar needs and a shared desire to be the best moms they can be. There will be a time of small groups where we dig into God's Word and break it down together. There will be guest speakers, activities, coffee, and snacks.

Upcoming meeting dates: 

          November 9 .  December 14 .  January 11

Questions? Contact Tamara Welsh or Kasey Knott

TABLE 2:4:6

Table 2:4:6 is a place to gather women and share a simple meal and dive deep with people over real stories and Christ-centered conversations. A time for a whole lot of laughter – and maybe a few tears – but time spent that leaves us with glad and full hearts. 

We’re inviting you to join in by either serving as a table host or coming to a table gathering as a participant.  The vision is: 2 hours; 4 questions; 6 women (Acts 2:46) Questions? Contact Barbie Ledford


Discipleship

Discipleship is not just another church program, but instead, it is a lifestyle to be adopted by every follower of Christ. It is a commitment to obey Jesus’s last words to His disciples (and to each of us) to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach them to obey all the commands I have given you….”(Matt28:19-20). This command is for every believer of all ages, to commit to bediscipled and to disciple others. The primary purpose of our church is to make disciples, who make disciples, who in turn make disciples. The Women’s Discipleship effort aims to equip the women who want to live out this relationship with a fellow believer with training and support. Questions? Contact Shannon Young
