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.


CONNECT

WINTER VIRTUAL CONNECTING EVENT

All women of Grace are invited to join us for a fun time of fellowship with new and old friends. We promise it will be the most fun you’ve had on Zoom!

Saturday, January 30 2:00-3:30pm 

Please register to help us with planning and to receive the link to some winter enjoyment!


DISCIPLE

Until larger, in-person groups are sustainable again, why not choose one of these Bible studies for personal or mutual discipleship this winter? First, register for the study that fits best for you. Next, gather the resources you need and we will let you know who else registered for the same study. This will give you the option to set up a virtual meetups for discussion and prayer with other Grace women ready to start in February.

TRUSTWORTHY: OVERCOMING OUR GREATEST STRUGGLES TO TRUST GOD 

A Study of 1 & 2 Kings
Lysa TerKeurst (LifeWay)
6-Session Video-Based Bible Study (each video approx.. 30 min; 5-day study guide; optional group discussion questions)
$15 to receive link to teaching videos to be covered by Grace

 

When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try. Join Lysa TerKeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God.

In this verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen Wilkin explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.


CARE

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

If you have questions about ministry among women, have a need that requires staff assistance or have a unique life experience that could encourage or comfort other women, contact Elaine Atchison, Director of Congregational Care.
