Women's Ministry

The Women’s Ministry is a grace-filled community of women from all seasons and walks of life sharing life’s joys and struggles in the context of how God is using every circumstance to mold us into Christ’s image. These women study God’s Word, pray, and serve the community together. By faith and God’s grace, in large and small ways, they are women of The Word reaching out to women in the world. 

Childcare is available on Tuesdays from 9am–12:30pm at a cost of $5 per mom/week by reservation.

In a world that is constantly changing, we are always waiting for something. We look into the mirror and wait for beauty that does not fade. We look into our souls and wait for an identity and a place that is secure. We look into our families and wait for healing from the hurts of the past. And we look into our present and wait for spouses to change, children to come, and longings to be satisfied. Join us as Susannah Baker, writer, Bible study teacher, wife, and mother of four, teaches us how to live hopeful and fruitful lives in the midst of waiting and disappointment.
