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.

MOPS: 

MOPS will meet 9:30 AM -11:30 AM on campus in the Gym on the 2nd & 4th Mondays of each month following the school schedule. 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.

MOPS Registration is currently open for the 2020-2021 year.

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

Our current reading is The Medallion By Cathy Gohlke

Our discussion will be Tuesday, September 15th at 7:00 pm. Location TBA.

For fans of best-selling World War II fiction like Sarah's Key and The Nightingale comes an illuminating tale of courage, sacrifice, and survival, about two couples whose lives are ravaged by Hitler's mad war yet eventually redeemed through the fate of one little girl. 

Seemingly overnight, the German blitzkrieg of Warsaw in 1939 turns its streets to a war zone and shatters the life of each citizen - Polish, Jewish, or otherwise. Sophie Kumiega, a British bride working in the city's library, awaits news of her husband, Janek, recently deployed with the Polish Air Force. Though Sophie is determined that she and the baby in her womb will stay safe, the days ahead will draw her into the plight of those around her, compelling her to help, whatever the danger. 

Rosa and Itzhak Dunovich never imagined they would welcome their longed-for first child in the Jewish ghetto, or that they would let anything tear their family apart. But as daily atrocities intensify, Rosa soon faces a terrifying reality: to save their daughter's life, she must send her into hiding. Her only hope of finding her after the war - if any of them survive - is a medallion she cuts in half and places around her neck. 

Inspired by true events of Poland's darkest days and brightest heroes, The Medallion paints a stunning portrait of war and its aftermath, daring us to believe that when all seems lost, God can make a way forward.
