Therefore go and make disciples.... Matthew 28:19
Every area of Women's Ministry is committed to help you to grow in your faith, invest in some great friendships, and join on mission with a community of women who want to make disciples who make disciples. We are excited this year to be even more intentional than ever before about discipleship, and welcoming women of all ages. Please invite a friend to join you!

Starting Tuesdays in January 9.30-11.30 am
We are really excited to be hosting Alpha for women on Tuesday mornings starting in January. Free Breakfast and Free Childcare provided!
Alpha is for everyone. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.
WHAT HAPPENS At Alpha?
A meal. Bonding over a meal is a great way to create community, so we start with food and take time to get to know one another.
A talk. The talks are designed to create, engage and inspire conversation. Alpha follows a film series of different topics each week that tackle big questions about faith and Christianity like "Is there more to life than this?" and "Who is Jesus?"
A discussion. Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything. And there’s nothing you can’t say. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
Contact Rachel White for more information.
Every other Thursday from 9:30-11:30am (Sept-May)
MOPS is designed to nurture mothers with children from infancy through kindergarten. The mission of our MOPS group (and MOPS International) is to provide moms with an opportunity to gather with other moms who are in the same stage of life, walk alongside each other, support each other and grow together as women. MOPS groups meet in churches throughout the United States, Canada and in 19 other countries. The women who participate are of many ages and backgrounds, but share the same desire... to be the best mothers they can be.
If you'd like additional information, please contact Bridget Vandeventer (Coordinator).

women's bIBLE STUDIES
Tuesday Mornings, Women's Life LifeGroups:
The goal for all of our LifeGroups is to make disciples who make disciples, through small groups with an intentional leader and an intentional plan for discipleship. Women's Life is a collection of 10 Women's LifeGroups who meet together for a shared time of connection and teaching, before spending time in their LifeGroups in Bible Study and prayer.
We are excited this year to be even more intentional than ever before about discipleship and welcoming women of all ages and stages of faith. You are welcome whatever your previous church experience, whatever your age, any week of the year - just show up! We love to welcome new people. Please invite a friend to join you!
Next Study - Life Shared - begins October 29th. We are excited about this video series created by Alpha. Come and join us for shared video, discussion and a study on what it means to develop a culture of invitation, hospitality and prayer. This study will help us to explore what it looks like to share faith with people of all backgrounds and beliefs, and help us prepare to host Alpha in the new year.
Join us for breakfast followed by our study on Tuesdays 9:30-11:30 am in the Gathering Place.
Childcare is available for birth-age 6. Preschoolers will receive a Bible lesson during this time.
Wednesday Mornings, Women's Bible Study Fellowship:
Meets Wednesdays starting September 11, 2019. BSF will be studying the book of Acts and Letters of the Apostles.
