The Women’s Ministry at Grace Community Church exists to help fulfill the mission statement of Grace Community Church: “To build spiritually healthy people for ministry in the world.” Our primary aim is to cultivate a culture of disciple-making, and to challenge and equip each other to ‘do ministry’ wherever God has us today. Gather with us around targeted discipleship topics that will inform and encourage your faith and outreach. Use your gifts to serve and strengthen the church family, or volunteer in one of our local strategic partnerships. We hope you will join us as we each work to connect, disciple and care for one another.

DISCIPLE

Morning Discipleship Study: Exploring the Heart of God’s Kingdom – 1 Samuel

Wednesdays from 9:30-11:15 am, February 7-April 18 in Room 253 (break on March 28)
Led by: Amy Gower & Meredith Teasley
Register Here
*Childcare registration is closed, although adults may still register for this study. Please email Christi Ramares, our Childcare Coordinator, to be placed on a childcare waiting list.*

What do our hearts have to do with the kingdom of God and his purposes? Why does it matter to us what happened to a bunch of people that lived 3,000 years ago? Come join us for a 10-week study of the book of 1 Samuel as we learn why God’s kingdom matters and what it means that God looks at the heart.

Monthly Evening Discipleship Study: Nehemiah: Rebuilt & Rebuilding

Thursdays from 6:00-8:00pm (February 8, March 8, April 5, May 3) in The Great Commission Room
Led by: Laura Wheeler & Elaine Atchison
Registration is now closed.

Kathleen Nielson’s compact study guide will help you invest personal time in a passage each week. Then, we’ll gather once a month for dessert, small group discussion and prayer.

Nehemiah is not only an example of great leadership; his story shows us in living color God’s sovereign plan to work through his people for his redemptive purposes in Jesus Christ. A 10-week personal study guide will lead us to immerse ourselves daily in a dramatic story of God’s people led by a godly leader at a crucial point in salvation history. We will also trace God’s faithfulness to preserve his people and fulfill his promises in our lives. You may order your study guide ($10) when you register online.

Sunday Afternoon Bible Reading & Prayer: Ezra & Nehemiah

Sundays from 4:00-5:30pm, resumes January 14
