LEARN

Bible Study: Our Women’s Ministry centers around gathering to study God’s Word, while building authentic 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) 

Fall Bible studies begin the week of September 5th. CLICK HERE for details and to sign up.

Discipleship 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.
• New small groups begin in August or we can match you, individually, with another woman.
• 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.
Group Discipleship begins in September:
   Mondays at 5:30pm
   Tuesdays at 10:00am
   Thursdays at 1:00pm
