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.
