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.

God has commanded his beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, he will keep us from falling into the same deception. Dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth.

Each session, you will watch one of Jackie’s brief teaching segments, review the last week’s personal work, and meet in small groups for discussion and prayer. Childcare is available for daytime class.

Moderate Prep: 4-day per session Personal Bible Study


CARE

A 50+ Prayer & Brown Bag Lunch meets to pray for women on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in Room 250 of the Discipleship Building. Contact Shirley Degraffenreid for more information.

Women within our congregation are available to provide support and resources in a number of areas, such as infertility, pregnancy loss, postpartum depression/anxiety, divorce, elder caregiving, and more.
