Women of Grace

The women’s ministry at Grace seeks to bring women of all ages together to encourage one another, to grow in faith, and to share Christ with those in our community. Women of Grace offers a variety of Bible studies and fellowship groups as well as outreach opportunities and special events.

    Adorned Study
    Wednesdays
    Front Porch Room, 6:30–8 p.m.

    Join us for Adorned by Nancy DeMoss Wogelmuth, Wednesdays 6:30–8 p.m. starting September 12, 2018. 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 roadmap to help you experience the kind of community and influence God designed you to have in the church and the world.

    Women to woman.

    Older and younger.

    Side by side.

    Life on life.

    This is God's good and beautiful plan.

    Don't miss this amazing opportunity to dive into God's Word and learn real life practical applications for forming lasting mentoring relationships. All women ages high school and up are welcome!

    If you completed Adorned in the summer, you are still welcome to join us. This fall we will move at a slower pace, watching each video, and covering one chapter per week. For those women who are ready to move forward with a Titus 2 mentoring relationship, you are welcome to come with your mentor or mentee. Come and watch the videos together, and then go and meet separately with your partner for discussion and prayer.

    • From Garden to Glory by Courtney Doctor
      (Chapel)
      Have you ever . . .
      ...wondered what Exodus has to do with Ephesians?
      ...wanted to study your Bible but didn’t know where to begin?
      ...thought of the Bible as nothing more than a set of rules to be followed?
       
      If so, this study was written for you! The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is a beautiful, epic, and cohesive story. It is the story of how our eternal God is on a grand mission to redeem and restore his rebellious and wayward children. But it is not a story meant to merely inform us. The story itself is meant to transform us and invite us to participate in this glorious redemption of all things!
       
      From Garden to Glory is a ten-week study that will take you through this amazing story. You will marvel at the steadfast love of our God who longs to dwell with his children again as he did in the Garden—and who will stop at nothing until he does.

    • Quilting & More
      (Jr. High Room)
      Quilting and 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.

    • MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
      (Sr. High Room)
      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. Peoria MOPS meets on Tuesdays 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 home-schooled children.
