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.

Wednesdays Mornings:

THE GOSPEL OF MARK

DAY, TIME & PLACE: WEDNESDAYS 9:30 am in Coffee Bar at Church at The Crossing

DATES: June 2, 9, 16, & 23 July 7, 14, & 28  August 4

Mark's Gospel is a proclamation that Jesus is the Messiah and Son of God, whose death and resurrection paid the penalty for our sins and achieved victory over Satan, Sin, and death. With this joyful announcement comes the call to all believers for faithful discipleship in the face of suffering and even in death."Whoever wants to be my disciple," Jesus says, must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me" Mark 8:34

In this 8 week study on the Gospel of Mark, we will trace the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, and ask: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS:

GOD OF DELIVERANCE BY: Jen Wilkin

DAY, TIME & PLACE: WEDNESDAYS 5:30 pm in Coffee Bar at Church at The Crossing

DATES: June 2, 9, 16,  & 23 July 7, 14, & 28 August 4

“Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph” (Exodus 1:8).

With that introduction, we enter into the story of the Hebrew people in the Book of Exodus. No longer under the protection of their forefather Joseph, the children of Israel became slaves to the Egyptians. But God was raising up a deliverer in Moses, to lead His people from bondage to freedom so they could worship Him.

The exodus of the Israelites shapes our understanding of the whole Bible, its themes reverberating all the way to Revelation. Exodus is the birth narrative of a nation unmistakably guided by the Great Deliverer.

In this 10-session verse-by-verse study of Exodus 1–18, Jen Wilkin shows us that Israel’s story is our story: the same God who delivered Israel also delivers all those He loves from slavery to sin and from service to the pharaohs of this world. He lifts our eyes to the promised land He has prepared where we dwell with I AM and worship Him as the one true God.

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.

We will be discussing The Book of Lost Friends By: Lisa Wingate

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the bestselling author of Before We Were Yours comes a new historical novel: the dramatic story of three young women searching for family amid the destruction of the post–Civil War South, and of a modern-day teacher who learns of their story and its vital connection to her students’ lives.

Bestselling author Lisa Wingate brings to life startling stories from actual “Lost Friends” advertisements that appeared in Southern newspapers after the Civil War, as newly freed slaves desperately searched for loved ones who had been sold away.

Louisiana, 1875: In the tumultuous era of Reconstruction, three young women set off as unwilling companions on a perilous quest: Hannie, a freed slave; Lavinia, the pampered heir to a now destitute plantation; and Juneau Jane, Lavinia’s Creole half sister. Each carries private wounds and powerful secrets as they head for Texas, following roads rife with vigilantes and soldiers still fighting a war lost a decade before. For Lavinia and Juneau Jane, the journey is one of stolen inheritance and financial desperation, but for Hannie, torn from her mother and siblings before slavery’s end, the pilgrimage west reignites an agonizing question: Could her long-lost family still be out there? Beyond the swamps lie the limitless frontiers of Texas and, improbably, hope.

Louisiana, 1987: For first-year teacher Benedetta Silva, a subsidized job at a poor rural school seems like the ticket to canceling her hefty student debt—until she lands in a tiny, out-of-step Mississippi River town. Augustine, Louisiana, is suspicious of new ideas and new people, and Benny can scarcely comprehend the lives of her poverty-stricken students. But amid the gnarled live oaks and run-down plantation homes lie the century-old history of three young women, a long-ago journey, and a hidden book that could change everything.
