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.

For more information, contact Shannon Young.

DRAW NEAR:  September 21-23 on Lake Whitney. Our hope is that this will be a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to create space for prayer, silence, reflection, and discussion as we go deep and study 1st and 2nd Peter.  We know that when we draw near to God that he draws near to us!  Our hope is that God will speak to us all in a very real way and in turn we will turn around and share what we learn to aid in the spread of the gospel.

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 Andrea Nelson
