Our Women’s Ministry centers around studying God’s Word, while building life-giving relationships with other women in the church. We seek to encourage one another in the steadfastness of our faith in Christ as we are “rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith.” (Colossians 2:5-7)

Discipleship womenDiscipleship focuses on Foundations of the Faith (The Creed), Spiritual Disciplines (The Battle), and Spiritual Formation/Development (The Disciplines). Discipleship centers on understanding the fundamental beliefs and disciplines of Christianity that will enable you to confidently affirm your belief and defend your faith. It is our leadership’s desire that all members go through discipleship, then disciple others.
• Factoring in various breaks throughout the year, this commitment generally takes 12-18 months. There are 32 lessons.
• Classes are typically 1-1.5 hours, depending on the size of the group.
• Women can be discipled in a small group or one on one.

In January you can join a group that meets from 10:00am-12:00pm or 6:00-7:30pm on Wednesdays or you may sign up for one-on-one discipleship.

Craving Grace – A Women’s Retreat at The Reserve at Bluebird Hill
Friday, March 1st 6:30-8:30pm and Saturday, March 2nd  9:30am – 3pm

Ladies, please join us for a local retreat at The Reserve at Bluebird Hill. We’ll spend Friday night and most of Saturday exploring our identity in Christ and how to live as His children. So often the disconnect between our head and our hearts can make our relationship with God seem transactional and meaningless. The lies we believe and the idols we run to keep us from experiencing and resting in the love of the Father. Come and be reminded of His love for you and the power of the gospel to literally change everything!

We’ll have dessert together on Friday night, coffee on Saturday morning, and a delicious catered lunch on Saturday.  Our speaker for the weekend will be Ruthie Delk. Ruthie is passionate about equipping women so that they can live into the reality of who they are in Christ and experience the freedom and joy that comes from being known and loved by God. She is the author of Craving Grace and co-author of the study Shame: Finding Freedom. Ruthie and David have three grown children and recently transitioned from empty nesters enjoying grandparenting to full time caregivers of aging parents with dementia. She has a special place in their heart for all things chocolate and enjoys watching movies, hiking, and riding bikes.  

Tickets are $35.  Click here to reserve a ticket. Reserved tickets can be picked up from the Women’s Ministry office during the week or at the retreat. Checks should be made payable to Christ Covenant Church.

ACTS 2:46 Groups COLOSSIAN event book club
In the early church, Scripture says the church gathered regularly to eat together and fellowship around the table.  An Acts group carries on this wonderful tradition! God made us to be in community with one another and to walk through life together!

If you’d like to be a part of a small group of women who encourage each other through the joys & sorrows of life, we invite you to join an Acts group.  

If you are interested in a group, please contact Susan Horn at shorn@christcov.org.  


Titus 2 Discipleship
In Titus 2, older women are encouraged to share the gospel and their lives with younger women. To facilitate this, small groups are being formed so that women can be equipped to glorify God as we learn to think biblically about womanhood. Groups will particularly focus on what this looks like in our daily lives. It’s a place to find encouragement and practical, biblical advice as we seek to navigate the roles God has given us.

If you are interested in a group, please contact Susan Horn at shorn@christcov.org.
