    Women's Ministry Summer Bible Study
    "Adorned"
    June 20—August 8, 2018
    Front Porch Room, 6–8 p.m.

    Join us Wednesday evenings starting June 20 as we study "Adorned" by Nancy DeMoss Wogelmuth. "Adorned" is a beautiful call to Titus 2 living—life on life, woman to woman, one generation to another. The Titus 2 model of older women living out the gospel and training younger women to do the same is vital. It's how we all thrive, how we are adorned, and how we adorn the gospel...together.

    Imagine older women investing themselves in the lives of younger women, blessing whole families and churches.

    Imagine younger women widening their circle to include women who've walked further down the road.

    Imagine women of all ages and seasons being transformed by the gospel, displaying its beauty, and making it believable to those around them.

    This rich study of the instructions to women in Titus 2 provides a road map to help you experience the kind of community and influence God designed you to have in the church and the world.

    All women are invited to join us from 6-8 p.m. in the Front Porch room. For more information, please contact Sarah Alkire. Click the button below to register!

    Mom Life

    Life as a mom is hard sometimes. Having a circle of moms to encourage, love, and support you makes the job a lot easier. Mom Life is a new Tuesday morning Mom Ministry for moms of school aged children. Lessons are designed to give you the confidence to embrace your life stage by teaching you how to biblically respond to the challenges of parenting older kids. Our focus this year will be “Finding Freedom from What Culture is Teaching Moms.” To complement this study, you will have extended time around your table to explore the lesson in depth and really connect with the women in your small group. Of course we will have lots of fun extras like breakfasts, mornings out, guest speakers, crafts, and door prizes. Led by Beth Hilbert.

    "Israel's Mission" Bible Study

    God gave an assignment to His people thousands of years ago: Bring “lost sheep” back into the love and safety of His kingdom. It’s still our task today. In this 13th volume of “That the World May Know,” you’ll glimpse the urgency and rewards of welcoming the strangers and prodigals the Lord longs to embrace. Discover the mission that can give your life – and the lives of those around you – greater meaning than you ever imagined. All women are welcome to attend. This study combines video and large group teaching with small group discussion. Led by Normi Howard and Val Bergia.

    “The Patriarchs" Bible Study

    “The Patriarchs,” a Bible study by Beth Moore Discover God's pursuit of a relationship with man, and marvel as His plan to bless all people unfolds. Explore concepts such as blessing, covenant, and promise, and the bearing each has on a New Testament believer’s life today. Group members will also study the Hebrew names of God introduced on the early pages of Scripture. Plunge into the heart of Genesis, to God’s remarkable pursuit of relationship and to the unfolding of His earthly plan: that through one nation—and ultimately, one man—all people on earth will be blessed. Many of the most profound and enduring concepts in the whole counsel of God’s Word are initiated in this marvelous book of beginnings. This study runs from September through May and offers large group teaching with a small group component. Led by Shannon Henry and Jennifer Reay.

    Quilting & More

    Quilting & More is a close “knit” group of ladies of all ages who meet for fellowship, encouragement, and prayer. Each morning we have a devotion and time of sharing show-and-tell projects followed by a project demonstration or work day. While quilting is the focus, there are ladies who knit, crochet, and craft. We find joy in doing community projects, taking field trips, and a yearly retreat to Shipshewana, Indiana. All are welcome! Led by Pat Ivaska.

    MOPS
    A place to refresh and renew
    with other moms just like you!

     New MOPS groups will begin September 12, 2017.


    Here at MOPS, we are on a mission to celebrate motherhood. We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving.


    What does a typical MOPS morning look like?

    Peoria MOPS meets at Grace Presbyterian Church on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. We enjoy breakfast together, speakers, crafts, and kid-free conversations. The alternate Tuesdays are optional Bible study days-a chance to dig into the Bible and get to know your small group even better! While the moms are together, their children, infant through pre-K, are cared for in our KIDventure program. We also offer a fantastic program for homeschooled children.
