Women's Ministry

Women Seeking Him Continually – Serving Him Faithfully – Sharing Him Boldly

Our purpose is to bring women of all ages and stages of life together in Christ for encouragement, spiritual growth, service, and fellowship in order to reach out to our friends, family, and community with the message of God’s love as demonstrated through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

What truly makes a woman beautiful is who she is in Christ.  As Christ enters a woman’s life, something lovely is created within her that cannot be changed by earthly things.  As a woman grows to become a disciple, she finds an assurance, hope, and peace that only comes from the Lord.  These are the elements of true beauty ~~ inner beauty.

Our mission:

To build intentional relationships by widening our circle of friendships among women within the church family; spending purposeful time with women outside the family of God; serving God by using our gifts for the benefits of others.

To strengthen women by spending time in the Word of God; entering the Word of God in our conversations when we are together;  prioritizing time for worship and prayer;  encouraging women to participate in small groups.

Memory verses:

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.  And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another ~~ and all the more as you see the Day approaching.  Hebrews 10:23-25

A new commandment I give you:  Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.  John 13:34-35

Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says.  James 1:22

Details about this study:

In this study, Lysa TerKeurst, of Proverbs 31 Ministry, shares how she is learning that there is a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God.  Lysa shares how to make better use of the two most powerful words “yes” and “no”.

Using Biblical teaching and practical insights this study will help you be more equipped to discern the best yes answers for your life.

The Best Yes will help you:  *Cure the disease to please with a biblical understanding of the command to love.  *Escape the guilt of disappointing others by learning the secret of the small no.  *Overcome the agony of hard choices by embracing a wisdom based decision-making process.  *Rise above the rush of endless demands and discover your best yes today.  *Make wise decisions in the midst of endless demands.

The Best Yes is the choice that shapes all our other choices. It’s what allows us to play our necessary parts in God’s plan, to spend our energy and focus our passion on the assignments that really are ours.
